Santa may have a few eyes on the houses this Christmas season after a Georgia judge - jokingly - blocked the Elf on a shelf.

Cobb County High Court Chief Justice Robert Leonard posted a humorous twist on Twitter last week chasing the animals.

“Tired of living in the Elf on the Shelf tyranny? Do you look forward to Elf forgetting to move and causing your children emotional distress? I am a civil servant and I will take the heat. My gift to tired parents, ”Leonard said on Twitter.

According to holiday tradition, elves hide in houses for a few weeks before Christmas and report to Santa who he is naughty and handsome. Elf dolls have to move to a different place each night.

“Unsurprisingly, the Elves sometimes move and do not walk all night. When the Elves are not moving, it leaves our young children in a state of deep emotional turmoil, ”Leonard wrote in a statement.

He recalled a "horrific incident" in his home where "three children were sent to school crying, another child being called 'Elf Murderer' and accused of causing an ant to 'lose its magic.'"

Given the risk of such emotional trauma - and the supply chain problems caused by the COVID-19 epidemic - the judge wrote that he had no choice but to evict the elves from Cobb County.

He allowed parents who did not feel pressured by the “Elf on the Shelf tyranny,” writing in his tweet: “If you love your ancestor, keep your ancestor. There is no disrespect. ”
