This time of year is all about being with family, eating big meals, decorating the tree with loved ones, and panicking over a stupid Elf doll for 24 nights straight.

Wait, what?

Modern parenthood has been besieged by a holiday phenomenon known as Elf on the Shelf. To know him is to hate him. He’s here to watch your kids and report any bad behavior back to Santa, but he’s also here to low-key ruin your life for a month, because coming up with fun and creative ways for him to pop up every morning during what’s arguably the most stressful month of the year is now a parental expectation. So let these funny tweets turn your tears of Elf terror into tears of laughter. Because that (and alcohol) is our only hope of surviving this shit.
