As an Elf of the mystical and traditional spirit of Christmas, I do hereby affirm that I shall help spread the magic and folklore that is a part of the Santa Claus Legend.
I will act as an emissary of love, hope and charity. I will always remember the true meaning of the Season by giving the gift of myself to each child or adult to whom I encounter.
I will take my role seriously by serving honestly and faithfully.
I pledge myself to these principles as an Elf to Santa Claus, the ambassador of St. Nicholas the gift giver of Myra.
