IT'S that time of the year again where parents' evenings are filled with giggles.

Whether it's arranging their elves to look like they're having a lads night in or getting trapped in the washing machine, it can be a lot of fun trying to think of the next mischievous place for children to find their elf in the morning.

Thousands of homes across the town have been getting involved with the tradition which sees families tell children Santa’s scout elves are sent to be Santa’s eyes and ears and help him manage his naughty or nice list. 

And it seems every year parents are getting more and more creative with the positions children find the Christmas elves in the next morning.
