Elf tip #3 - Offering Tobacco. When you see an elf making an offering, please be respectful and do not disturb them or ask questions until they are finished. Offering tobacco is a prayer. There are many reasons that they do the offerings - one of the main one is to be thankful for each gift that they have. Whether it be a new day, food in their stomachs, warmth on a cold day, or friendship. Sometimes, people forget to be thankful for the good things that they have in life - it is a good reminder.

Learn from the elves and be thankful. Take a minute to give thanks for the good and great things you have when you wake up in the morning. It is these moments that bring joy to the rest of our days.
