It’s that time of year, you know, the time that we are all running around hustling and bustling to get something done. Well, this year, I made it my motto to slow things down and really enjoy the Christmas Season!
One of the ways we are slowing down is by starting a tradition in our neighborhood, You’ve Been Elfed. It is similar to “You’ve been booed,” but you do it during the Christmas season. While we call it You’ve Been Booed, it is also known as You’ve Been Jingled and You’ve Been Tinsled. Regardless of what you call it, you will have a lot of fun.

How do I Elf Someone?
It is simple to start the You’ve Been Elfed Tradition! Basically, anytime after Thanksgiving and before Christmas, you bake (or buy) some tasty treats or make a gift basket and attach the FREE You’ve been Elfed Printables. (You can grab these below!) and secretly drop them off at a neighbor’s home! It’s sort of like doorbell ditching, but you are leaving something fun, making it totally acceptable.
My kids have so much fun doing this as they try not to get caught, which is getting more and more difficult with those camera doorbells now!
It is easy to start this in your neighborhood or apartment. I usually give 2 to 3 different neighbors a gift box of treats, just in case someone chooses not to participate.
Once someone is elfed, then they are supposed to hang up their You’ve been Elfed sign on their door or window so everyone knows they have already been elfed. They then put together their goodie bag and sign and continue on with the elfing!
