Lakeside’s Deal of the Day (November 21st)
DAY ONE Holiday Fun Fact:
Clement Clark Moore, author of the famous poem we know as ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas, was one of the first authors to mention elves in the Christmas tradition. But the elf in Moore’s story isn’t who we’d expect. Moore describes Santa as the “jolly old elf.” This early depiction of Santa might be one of the major reasons why elves are such a big part of Christmas today. Find out more about the origins of Christmas elves below.
Holiday Traditions: The Origins of Christmas Elves
Most of us grew up never questioning why elves are such a big part of the holidays. Santa’s little helpers are everywhere, from adorable Christmas elf decorations to some of our favorite characters in classic Christmas movies. Elves became a huge part of the Christmas tradition fairly early, and much like the reason behind why we decorate with holiday lights during the winter season, their part in the Christmas story can be traced back to ancient myths and folklore. Find out how elves first fit into the Christmas tradition with these fun facts.
