Be good for goodness sake and share your memories of these wonderful elf scenes.
We found 9 photos in the Shields Gazette archives and they show Santa’s helpers having a great time over the years.
They were taken at South Shields Museum, the Boldon Asda store and Hedworth Hall.
We’ve got elves at Hebburn Court and the West Boldon Environmental Centre.
So don’t sit on the shelf. Get browsing through our photo selection and then get in touch with your own memories
