NORTH POLE, Nov. 18, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Flight schedules have been set by Santa and pre-season training is officially wrapping up. Millions of Scout Elves from the beloved holiday tradition The Elf on the Shelf® are primed to take to the skies during one of the most anticipated weeks of the year – Scout Elf Return Week™. This year, the week runs Friday, November 25 through Friday, December 2, and it promises to be one of the most thrilling ones yet.
All around the world, families are anxiously waiting for their beloved Scout Elves to fly back to them for another memory-making holiday season. Many have already reread their Elf on the Shelf® storybook in preparation for their Scout Elf's homecoming. Some are setting up "welcome back" landing pads for their elves, some have cozy pajamas from the 2016 Claus Couture Collection® ready for them, and others are baking their elves' favorite sweet treats.
For families who have not yet adopted a Scout Elf, Scout Elf Return Week is the year's most popular time to do so. Recent graduates of Scout Elf Training School are standing by (some more patient than others), hoping to be adopted by families any day now.
