Albany - Looking to start a new holiday tradition? Why not try placing an Elf on the Shelf? Wednesday, at Place on the Pointe gift shop, Author Carol Albersold of Atlanta signed copies of the gift book.

The story of the Elf on the Shelf is that each year the elf magically appears on Thanksgiving to watch over children. Each night he flies back to the North Pole and reports their activity to Santa Claus... then reappears in a different location in the home every morning.

Albersold said, "There are two rules, Don't touch the elf. Christmas magic is very fragile, and it's not for sure that he'll lose his magic, but he might. And he does not speak to the children, because he's supposed to be their liaison to Santa."

You can find the book at Place on the Pointe and other locations throughout South Georgia.  To find out more, click here.
