I know what you’re thinking; but where else can an elf truly run amuck than in the land of sea and sun?

It’s Christmas time. In the Caribbean, it’s a season synonymous with joy and gladness, tanned Santas, spiced eats and drinks, raisins in everything and crowds of happy, helpful elves!

As a parent, I’ve found that if you promote your child to the lofty status of elf, you could get just about anything done. When I need the bookshelf tidied I don’t jostle Mekhi (the happy-go-lucky 9-year-old who routinely ignores the task); I summon Mekhi, the number 1 yuletide elf who Kringle himself trusts with his very livelihood. Beds need making? I appoint the daughter with a belly full of jelly.

This year, we’re proposing two (2) fun ways to upgrade your operations. Make it official:

  1. Give the children official Caribbean-elf names
  2. Get their holly, jolly portraits done

Step 1: Name your Elf

Naming your elf is simple. Here’s the sepee:

Your child doesn’t have a nickname? (gasp!) Use their real first name (given name) in cases such as these. For example, using two of my very own:

Freshly appointed elf Khi Tinselpeddler

Mekhi shall henceforth be dubbed Khi Tinselpeddler.

Freshly appointed elf Lady Gingerbuns

Kara shall hereinafter be called Lady Gingerbuns.

Get it?

To help you along, here are the random elf-surname parts generated for your child. Put everything together and what do you get?

Step 2: Get an Elf Portrait

Which elf wouldn’t like to be immortalized on the wall-of-fame, in a framed portrait right next to the Christmas tree?

We’ve partnered with the merry-makers at IN Clubhouse to teach young boys and girls (ages 5 to 15) how to elf themselves!

In this one-time, 1hr virtual workshop, your little ones will learn how to draw themselves as a Christmas elf, together with me (aunty Rachael) and a zoom room of their holly jolly peers.

The Elf Yuhself workshop goes live on Friday 11th December 2020 at 5pm and registration ensures that your little elf can grab a seat.

Can’t wait to see your freshly upgraded workforce. I’m looking forward to helping them (and you) step-out massive in the season of the elves!
