Part of Bristol is getting shoppers in the Christmas spirit with its very own elf trail.
If you head to Bedminster, you might find yourself bumping into some elves. The community is taking it all very seriously - local schools have provided some of the little helpers and there's even an 'Elf and Safety' office.
The idea is children look for some of a hundred elves and claim rewards at candy check-in points if they spot them.
Obviously I think the kids will really jump on board and I hope their parents too. Anyone strolling through the area can just have it as an extra fun thing to do, you know - spot some elves.

Jasper, the dog which no one wanted, has finally found a home. A desperate national plea was recently launched to find a new owner for the springer spaniel who was resident at Ferne Animal Sanctuary, Wambrook, near Chard, Somerset.
Jasper had been at the Sanctuary’s kennels for six months and was showing signs of depression.
"Everyone here at Ferne Animal Sanctuary is delighted that Jasper has finally found a new home after being with us for so long - and with such a lovely owner who can give him all the care and attention he needs. It has made our year. We are over the moon! I must sincerely thank all the local, regional and national press who helped us in our quest to find Jasper the perfect home. Special thanks must also go to the general public for their caring messages of support and encouragement. We had over 600 enquiries and so many kind offers to give him a new home. I really can’t express to everyone how grateful we are."
"I am so happy to have found Jasper and it is just great having him here with me. He has settled in so well and seems very content. We are enjoying some lovely long walks together and are getting to know one another more each day. Jasper is my constant companion and follows me around everywhere.”
