Lansing, MI (WILX) Does the Elf on the Shelf make an appearance in your house over the holiday season? If so, count yourself among millions of others.
Since the Christmas tradition launched in 2005, 11 million scout elves have been adopted by families around the world.
According to the tradition--the elf's job is to keep an eye on the children in the house and report back to Santa each night about their behavior.
The elf moves when the kids are sleeping-- which is why the children find their elf in a different spot each morning.
