The Selfish Elf is a short story about a young elf who has a not-so-elfish personality. She would rather receive than give. One night she steals Santaas bag along with as many toys as she can stuff into it and leaves the North Pole behind. She ends up in a small town where she learns a valuable lesson from an unlikely source about what greed can do to a person and especially an elf. The Christmas Elf was written with hopes that the reader will enjoy the short adventure of a young elf, but it was also written as instructions for a gift exchange whenever and wherever gifts are, well, exchanged. This type of gift exchange has been around a few years with various stories to move it along. The gift exchange goes like this: Persons sit around in a circle holding any random gift that they choose, while someone else (the one without a gift) reads the story, The Selfish Elf. In the story the author uses the words alefta and arighta to move the elf along in her journey. When the people in the circle hear either alefta or aright, a they pass their gifts in that direction to the person sitting beside them. Whatever gift the person is holding when the story is over is the one they go home with. No exceptions!The gift exchange goes like this: Persons sit around in a circle holding any random gift that they choose, while someone else (the one without a gift) reads the story, The Selfish Elf.
