Parents are freezing Elf on the Shelf and blaming Elsa from 'Frozen'

The Elf on the Shelf has become an increasingly popular gimmick in recent years as parents convince their children that an all-knowing elf could report their bad behavior to Santa Claus. Now a new trend has emerged as parents stage photos of the elf meeting his match in the shape of Elsa from "Frozen."

The trend appears to have originated on Pinterest.
