Just in case you’re not familiar with this popular holiday tradition, the Elf on the Shelf is a “scout elf” that sits in families’ homes and reports back to Santa every night to let him know whether the kids in his charge have been naughty or nice. Part of the game is to move the elf’s location and let the children find him the next day. (Depending on the family’s sense of humor, the elf can end up in some pretty interesting places.)
Honey Boo Boo received hers as a gift from a fan in Oklahoma named Emilee Martin. She and mom Josey made a contribution to the Thompson/Shannon family’s Christmas toy drive and included the Elf for Alana to keep “for working so hard and for doing such a great deed,” Josey explains on Alana’s official Facebook page.
Since then, Alana’s Christmas companion – whom she named Elvis Sweetie – has been making spirits bright for Honey Boo Boo, Mama June and the rest of the family. She’s also been causing a bit of mischief around the house, which June has been capturing on film and sharing with fans.
