The history of the elf as a human legend is a chequered one, since according the Scandinavian pagan mythology the elf was considered to be a type of house-gnome, who spied on you and treated you according to your actions. This could include playing cruel tricks on people if they were poorly behaved. However in Scandinavia in the mid-1800s, elves became associated with Father Christmas, helping him make toys and getting his sleigh off the ground. They have been popularised in the western world ever since as Christmas helpers with names like Pepper Minstix and Sugarplum Mary! There are many different stories around about how many elves Santa employs, but whatever the 'truth' is, elves are associated with our modern Christmas celebrations, particularly where there are children around, and they are often included in Christmas decorations and displays. To create a Christmas wonderland you could order a few of these along with other Christmas decorations and items from the Christmas Warehouse, and delight passers-by in your neighbourhood, particularly the children. Make sure to order these well in time for Christmas so you can start planning your magical display.
