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:
- Give the children official Caribbean-elf names
- 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:
Mekhi shall henceforth be dubbed Khi Tinselpeddler.
Kara shall hereinafter be called Lady Gingerbuns.
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!
