generally,when I was in Poland I didn't like Christmas but this time I really enjoy it!
So, I've been taking photos since December 1st when I met a little guy in a red outfit. He appeared unexpectedly. To be honest, I had never heard about this tradition in the US.
What's the 'Elf on the shelf' ?
He arrives on Dec 1st and is sent by Santa to check on good children, to help keep the belief that the Elf is real - he changes places every night (I'm responsible for this) that's why I took some photos - this guy is sooo crazyyyyy.
Creativity is needed!
All in all, on Christmas Eve, he reports to Santa and hitches a ride back to the North Pole, that's a big difference between Polish and American tradition that I've noticed so far.
Polish people celebrate Santa's Day on Dec 6th but Americans on Dec 24th.
