In most cultures, at least English-speaking ones, Christmas elves were considered tiny humanoid creatures who live at the North Pole and help Santa Claus with anything he needs, while sometimes described as small furry animals as well.

They are often depicted as jovial creatures who like to have fun even when working and among many other potential tasks they might have they take care of the reindeer and create and produce various toys that will be used as presents later on.

Wearing pointy hats and red or green clothes, many say they are the ones to be thanked for everyone getting their presents, and some such elves become known, with names like Tinsel Chillmilk, Mint Magicjoy, and Snowflake Twinkleball.
