Have you ever wondered how Santa knows whether you've been naughty or nice?
Well, if your family has adopted an Elf on a Shelf, you know. These magic 'scout elves' that magically move about people's homes are Santa's eyes and ears.
This is just one of many traditions that families follow during the holidays. Others countdown the days till Christmas with an Advent calendar or mark each night of Hanukkah by lighting a candle on their menorah.
