Looks like Elf on the Shelf (and some parents) will be getting some much deserved time off this holiday season, thanks to one Georgia judge's Mock Order banning Elf on the Shelf.
After seeing a conversation on social media about Elf on the Shelf, Judge Robert D. Leonard II drafted an order which banishes all Elves on Shelves from Cobb County.
Judge Robert D. Leonard II tweeted the order:
The mock order is all in good fun, designed to help take the weight of the holidays off parents and the elf just a little.
Judge Leonard says he LOVES the Elf on the Shelf and is not opposed to the elf still visiting if they so wish. In a statement he said quote, "I decided that for those people that needed to retire their Elf or put it out later in the year, I could take the heat for them with a mock order."
