The Elf on the Shelf belonging to the local Lawson family has reportedly given an underwhelming performance this year, with the family reporting “he just doesn’t seem to be that into it this time.”
The novelty doll, known for its tendency to magically appear in new locations, has not moved from its original perch on the Lawson family mantle.
Brenda Lawson, mother and longtime fan of the Elf commented, “It’s kind of frustrating, I mean I get that this year has been hard for everyone, but we only bring the little guy out for like a week anyways. Seems like a cop-out to me.”
Lola Lawson, 7, has also grown frustrated with the toy’s lack of activity saying, “I’ve been in Zoom school all day for months, and I was really looking forward to seeing where he’d end up in the mornings, but he hasn’t moved an inch.” She continued, glaring at the Elf, “It really makes you question if any of this Christmas stuff is even real at all!”
At press time, the shelved Elf was seen making a leap for the lit fireplace while no one was looking.
