the elf on the shelf he watches over my family the elf on the shelf is not supposed to be threatening but i have seen his eyes dart across the room and look right at me that cold unchanging smile belies all the hate that he feels hate that he feels (evil cackling) the elf on the shelf started to speak to me in my dreams the elf on the shelf has claimed the souls of my family and i have seen him steal the butcher knife that i just finished sharpening that cold unchanging smile i see right through all of the plans all of the plans (evil cackling) the elf on the shelf has taken all that is dear to me the elf on the shelf laid waste to all that is full of cheer but i have seen the blood that should be on his hands appear on mine that cold unchanging smile i'm starting to know what it means

in the house on the hill above the covered bridge the table in the kitchen is extended for the guests they know what is coming to the house on the hill it comes every year through the covered bridge the leaf in the table in the kitchen is pushed back together they exchange loaded glances across the kitchen in the house on the hill an "i'm sorry but this is just the way it is" met with an "i'm just the way i am and i won't be sorry" all without words the words will come later through the covered bridge dressed in their sunday finest

should old acquaintance be forgot and never brought to mind should old acquaintance be forgot and old lang syne for auld lang syne my dear for auld lang syne we'll take a cup of kindness yet for auld lang syne [...@^&@&*!] we two have paddled in the stream from morning sun till dine but seas between us broad have roared since auld lang syne and there’s a hand my trusty friend and give me a hand o’ thine we’ll take a right good-will draught for auld lang syne

hello from christmas village i'm trapped here, and i have been for years... at least i think i am. the cycle comes and goes and every single year i find myself frozen in the moment. when i was younger, i used to think it was just me and the wind... until i became an adult, and realized just how much i relied on electric lights and the warmth of home to maintain form. and in this place, where the wind always blows, i'm surrounded by the people i know and love. i found a way to keep myself grounded without falling into the dark (keeping the joy alive / connecting / becoming) i don't think i'm trapped here anymore hello from christmas village
