As Christmas is fast approaching - yes, we can't wait either - many festive traditions will start to commence.
While the likes of Christmas markets are in full swing, traditions such as putting out the Christmas tree and decorations wait until December for many.
One of the longest-running Christmas traditions is the Elf on the Shelf - for those unaware, the premise is that the cuddly elf you put out flies to the North Pole each night to tell Santa Claus if the kids have been naughty or nice.
While the premise of the Elf on the Shelf has remained largely unchanged for many years, this one TikToker has a new hack which some people have described as a 'game changer'.
The mum who goes by the name of ReBecca on TikTok, shared her tips for Elf on the Shelf in a video she posted to her 25,000 followers.
For this hack, all you need is four paperclips to get started.
The mum explains that you should 'unravel' these paperclips and make them 'straight'.
She explains: "[With the paperclips] you go in-between the stitches on each of his limbs, and you took it in all the way up.
The TikToker then explains to pull back a little bit of the paperclip from the limb - in this case arm - and cut the end of the paperclip off.
She continues: "When you are setting him up for all your little Christmas nonsense, he is bendy, he holds it in place, and you can move his legs.
"This is a game changer," the mum explains.
And it seems her viewers are in agreement with her, as many have taken to the comments on the TikTok to discuss the Christmas hack.
One person said: "Why doesn’t he already come like that is my question. Thanks for the tip, it will definitely change the game this year."
A second added: "Ok this is smart! I’ve only seen wire and having to make a hole then sew it closed so I just haven’t done it but now."
A third said: "For reals… my elf game has changed this year!!! Thank you!!!!"
And a fourth added: "As expensive as those little dolls are, they should’ve come with wire already."
The TikToker seems to be far from a Scrooge, as she often posts Christmas videos on her page.
In a recent TikTok, she admitted that she had already put the Christmas tree up and all the Christmas cards were ordered by mid-November.
'Tis the season.
