If the holiday season has become too serious for you, all planning, and shopping and responsibilities, you need to remember to lighten up and sneak in some fun. A good reminder for doing that is Jason Deas’ “101 Things To Do With Your Christmas Elf” from Racehorse Publishing (www.skyhorsepublishing.com).

This very charming book may well have you laughing out loud as you peruse the many different, innovative and often crazy ways that your Christmas Elf can enjoy himself beyond being perched on the bookshelf or fireplace mantel. Activities include everything from Hide & Seek and Pumping Iron to a Snowball Fight and Snack Time.
