Once upon a time, not so very long ago........

Little Leon was born with a poorly heart. This made his Mummy and Daddy sad and they decided to search for a special friend who would keep Little Leon company and look after him while he was in hospital.............

The Adventure begins..............

on the eleventh day of christmas, Little Leon tells the tale of Elves

The History of Santa's Elves (Elf)

St. Nick has many helpers in all the different countries around the world. While each Elf goes back and forth to Santa's Workshop, many live in the countries they originate from.
In some countries where English is the main language, these helpers are called Santa's Elves. The green and red clad helpers (Elf) wrap the gifts and make the tops in Santa's Workshop, which is located in the Arctic North Pole.
In days gone by, children loved St. Nick, but were afraid of his helpers. For it was told that is was the helpers who kept track of who had been naughty and who had been nice. Naughty children would get coal in their stockings and may even be carried away in the helper's bags until they learned to be good.
Currently, in America, if a child is naughty during the year, Santa may leave coal or "snowman poop."
The poem that Santa includes with the snowman poop is:
"You've been awfully bad;
So here's the scoop.
All you get in your stocking is snowman poop."
If a child gets coal or snowman poop in their stocking on St. Nick's day, they do have one more chance to behave. They must behave until Christmas Eve when if they have been good, Santa may return their real stocking with goodies inside.
If the child gets snowman poop in their stocking on Christmas Eve, they will have to be good all year if they don't want to get it again the next Christmas Eve!
What can you do to help keep an Elf from playing pranks on you on Stocking Day or Christmas Eve?
Rumor has it that if you leave a bowl of porridge out for an Elf, it will help keep them from playing any pranks on you

So Little Leon is going to leave Santas elves some porridge!  Just in case......
