December 5 – persuasive

☆  persuasive 説得力のある


We have an “Elf of the Shelf” in our house during December… Have you heard of them? It’s a small elf doll, that comes from Santa’s home to watch over kids, and make sure they are being good. Each night, the Elf (ours is called Bubbles) becomes magical, and he returns to the North Pole, to let Santa know if they kids have been naughty or nice. Then Bubbles comes back by morning time…

Believe it or not, this is a very persuasive way to get kids to be good! Unfortunately, his “magical” powers need some “help” from me each night! When he comes back from the North Pole in the morning, he needs to be in a different spot from the day before (that’s my job!) otherwise, the kids don’t believe in his magic, and he is no longer persuasive!
