Merry Christmas from Nellie the Elf on the Shelf



Have you been following the adventures of Nellie, our Tampa Bay Times Elf on the Shelf?

For the uninitiated, the Elf on the Shelf is a Christmastime game based on a children’s book of the same name. Legend has it that scout elves hide in homes all over. At the end of each day, the elves head back to the North Pole and report to Santa the good and bad deeds of the day.

In most homes, the Elf on the Shelf appears in a new spot each morning, but our adventurous little elf Nellie spent the month of December making her way across Tampa Bay.

We’ve collected some of our favorite photos of Nellie’s adventures. For more, follow our Instagram account, @tampabaytimes. You can see all of Nellie’s travels by searching the hashtag. #tampabayelfontheshelf.
