December is well and truly underway which means one thing - those naughty elf dolls are already causing mischief up and down the country!
Parents from across the UK have taken to social media to share hilarious snaps of their ill-mannered Christmas elves causing mayhem and hiding out in some very unique places.
However, it's not just Elf on the Shelf who is being naughty as parents have shared snaps of their Elves Behaving Badly and various other brands of the festive game, too.
Among the most amusing photos shows a naughty duo making snow angels in flour, while another is trying to tamper with the plugs in a busy office.
Elsewhere, some children may be surprised to find their elves quarantining in glass jars until they receive a negative PCR test - because even Santa's helpers aren't exempt from getting COVID-19.
