The Elf on the Shelf Brings Holiday Cheer to Covington

Much to our surprise, the Elf on the Shelf mysteriously appeared in Café Josée at the Innsbrook office and left us a wonderful holiday display, yummy goodies and a cheerful message!

“I’m here to bring some Christmas cheer! We have much to be thankful for this year, so enjoy a treat and a laugh. I will try to contain my shenanigans to the kitchen area, but don’t surprised if I show up somewhere else in the office!”
Thank you – Mr. Elf

Tradition holds that Santa’s “scout elves” hide during the day and watch to see who’s naughty and who’s nice, then report back to Santa. From all appearances, our mischievous little Mr. Elf enjoys his nightly shenanigans at Covington Travel!

Please return to this page or visit our Covington Facebook page daily to see what Mr. Elf does next. Perhaps he will be found hanging around our beautiful trees or maybe sneaking a snack in the refrigerator. We’ll just have to wait and find out!!

Here’s what Mr. Elf has been up to each night in our Headquarters Office:
