This is what happens when you ask a man to partake in the magic that is Christmas.
It goes something like this....
Me to Mr H - "darling, wouldn't it be just lovely if we took it in turns to move the elves around the house and help spread the magic of Christmas to our little children?"
Mr H - walks to tree, picks up elves and plonks them down in the nearest available space in the hall.
Not quite what I had in mind but hey ho!
