In a very 'tongue and cheek' way, a Cobb County judge is blocking the very popular, "Elf on the Shelf" from Christmas this season. Judge Rob Leonard wrote an order banishing the elf from showing up at homes around Cobb County. In the order, Judge Leonard says the elf is a "distraction," and if the elf doesn't move, some children could be caused some distress over it. While the order is signed, it does allow parents to celebrate and take part or not.
