#NEW Elf On The Shelf Birthday Tradition @ElfOnTheShelf #Birthday

ELF on The Shelf Birthday Tradition
Start a New Tradition With Your Family
Our house has quite a few traditions, one of which is Elf on the Shelf. Christmas is a very magical time in our house and since my children are 23, 15 and 7 the magic has been going on for many years. Throughout the years we have had many different stories and traditions that have become precious to our family and holiday time. Elf on the Shelf has made itself into our household and has become part of our family during the past year. Elf on the Shelf is Santa’s helper who is the go between the North Pole and your home. The Elf is adopted and named by your family and the rules are basically up to you. You can be as creative as you would like posing your Elf in different ways or just leaving him in one spot. It’s all up to you!
Recently, I was invited by Niche Parent to Dylan’s Candy Bar, NYC to experience Elf on the Shelf Birthday Tradition. This is new to Elf on the Shelf and a way to extend keeping our little friend in our family during the year as well as Christmas time. During the Elf Birthday Party we met with one of the co owners of the original Elf on the Shelf, Christa Pitts. She shared a heartwarming story about how her mom and sister put together the book, Elf on the Shelf that mirrored their own childhood memories and traditions. What an honor!
With the new extension of the tradition you can have your Elf visit on your own or your child’s birthday and decorate the Birthday Chair! The Birthday Elf has his/her own Cupcake outfit and Birthday hat to add more fun to the festivities. The set also comes with a Birthday book that explains everything. PS: Be sure to read the book with your child before the actual birthday, so you both know what is expected.  There is also a birthday countdown chart that has a flip side with a birthday candle game. All of the new fun will just add even more smiles to your child’s face when they see their Elf friend return from the North Pole just to spend the day with them on their birthday!  Em’s birthday is coming up in October and we cannot wait to try out this new tradition in our own family. Happy Birthday and Happy Traditions! Party on with Elf and the Shelf Birthday Tradition. Find out more about Elf On The Shelf here.

Experience THE RIDE
in NYC For the Ultimate Experience 

Who’s ready to have a little fun right here in NYC? Be a tourist in your own town with THE RIDE! We have all seen it going through the streets of NYC, now is our chance to ride it! Our family is going on board to check it out very soon, so look out for our tweets all about it. If you are visiting NYC this summer or fall it’s the perfect way to take a fun tour of the city and more! I really thing we are in for a treat with this one! THE RIDE uses New York City and its renowned landmarks as the backdrop for a theatrical event that blurs the boundary between tour and performance. The city becomes a stage, and soon you can’t tell where the street ends and the show begins!

THE RIDE gives you a front-row seat to the streets of New York City in a multi-million dollar motor coach that comes equipped with state-of-the-art audio/visual technology, including 40 plasma screen TVs and over 3000 LED lights. Enjoy the performance from the comfort of one-of-a-kind stadium seating and huge panoramic windows.

While navigating a 4.2-mile midtown path, our performers and native New Yorkers alike become performers for THE RIDE, showing guests an entirely new side of New York City they can’t see anywhere else.

Whether you’re new to the city or a long-time native, you’ll find something to enjoy.

Get On, and Experience the Ride.
