Before there was Elf on the Shelf, there was Timmy the Elf.
Each and every year I patiently await the arrival of Timmy on Christmas Eve. As soon as it would get dark, I would start searching around looking for the sign that Timmy had visited. The anticipation was daunting as each year Mom would tell me she wasn’t sure if Timmy would come, I might be “too old” she would say – I will be 27 this year and he has yet to not show up.
Timmy would hide a present for me to find – a new pair of pajamas and a movie to watch with Mom. Once I had found my present from Timmy, I would take a nice bubble bath, get all cozy in my new pajamas and watch the movie with mom while munching on our favourite snacks.
Timmy the Elf was always and remains to be one of my favorite holiday traditions.
