Merry Christmas!


Traditionally on Alfie’s last night with us, he has always seated himself next to a nativity scene. This year, he is playing Joseph’s role in the church pageant as he welcomes the birth of Jesus Christ. 

Tears have already been shed in anticipation of Alfie’s farewell. The kids will miss him and his silly antics and scenes but will look forward to another season next year. 

Thanks for tuning in and we hope you’ll come back next Thanksgiving for more Alfie on the Shelf fun. 

Merry Christmas and Happy 2016!

šŸŽ¶An Alfie in a Pear TreešŸŽ¶

On the twelfth day of Christmas

My true love gave to me

Twelve lords a-leaping,

Eleven ladies dancing,

Ten pipers piping, 

Nine drummers drumming,

Eight maids a-milking,

Seven swans a-swimming,

Six geese a-laying,

Five gold rings,

Four calling birds,

Three French hens,

Two turtledoves,

And an Alfie in a pear tree!

It’s a Festivus Miracle!

It’s a Festivus miracle! Frank Costanza explains Festivus (the secular holiday held on December 23) to Alfie, Jerry, Elaine, Kramer, and his very uncomfortable son George. Next on the agenda are eating a Festivus dinner, airing grievances, showing feats of strength, and naming Festivus miracles. In this case, Alfie showing up definitely counts for one!

“I just want to live in America and feel normal. I was raised at the North Pole but spend most of December flying between the NP and San Francisco for work. The kids I watch over are pretty good and they give me creative license to have fun and I feel pretty lucky for that. It allows me to have fun at work and stuff but sometimes I just want to wear my red suit and sit on shelf and not watch any kids at all. You know? Just close my eyes and zone out… but I do it for the kids. And Santa. Can’t forget the big jolly guy.”
