If there’s one thing you can count on celebrities to do, it’s to bring the drama. This time, the fun comes from a tradition known as ‘Elf on the Shelf’ – where parents put a little toy elf in a house and tell their children that it reports on whether they are being naughty or nice to Santa. The Hollywood version however is a post of a celeb with another celeb Photoshopped on their shoulder. The difficult part? The actors’ names must rhyme.
