    Merry Christmas everyone!! Today we have Elf, a spectacular and awesomely funny movie to watch. Buddy is a human. He thinks he's an elf because he snuck into Santa's sack of gifts when he came to the orphanage. His co-workers at the north pole make fun of him because he never gets enough toys made. When he finds out he's human and has a dar who is on the naughty list, he sets out on an adventure to find his real dad. In the end, it will probably make you full of the Christmas spirit!! Overall, this movie is the very best movie to watch on Christmas or Christmas eve. 5 stars for sure!!!!

        This is a really funny movie! Buddy the elf is a human but when he was just a baby in a orphanage he snuck into Santa's bag of toys because he saw a teddy bear. Santa didn't even notice he was in the bag. When he was brought back into the workshop he was taken care of by an elf who didn't make toys anymore. but when Buddy was older he over heard a conversation that he wasn't an elf. Then his foster dad (the elf) (papa elf) admitted that he wasn't an elf and told him the whole story. But he also told him that his real father lives in New York. So Buddy traveled to New York to visit his father. At first his father didn't want him and when Buddy ruined a very import meeting for his work the father kicked him out. But on Christmas eve he regreted it. On Christmas Eve Santa's sleigh crashed because there wasn't any Cristmas spirit. Unfortuantly the park rangers started to chase them. But somewhere else, Buddy's "girlfriend" started to sing because Buddy once told her "The best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear." So then she started to sing and everyone is the crowd joined in. And that's how Christmas was saved. And yes this is a Christmas movie. (I feel like I spoiled the whole thing)

                    This movie is awesome! It’s my family’s favorite Christmas movie. It is about this human who grew up thinking that he was an elf going into the real world. It is super funny I definitely recommend it.
