Naughty or nice? Ask The Elf on the Shelf

  • The elves are "the eyes and ears" of Santa Claus
  • The Elf on the Shelf CEO Christa Pitts shares the secret behind the popular Christmas tradition

We know Santa sees us when we're sleeping, and knows if we've been bad or good, but how does he really know? Could it be because he has eyes and ears in our homes, listening and watching all season long?

Some elves have traded in their workshop posts in the North Pole to be Santa's ultimate helper -- to become "The Elf on the Shelf." Christa Pitts is the CEO of The Elf on the Shelf and we asked her to share with us the secret behind the magic.
