When Isabelle LaPeruta, a 7-year-old New Jersey girl, accidentally touched her Elf on the Shelf she thought she did something that would get her in trouble with Santa. According to the popular children's book, touching the Elf on a Shelf is a big time no-no and doing so means the Christmas magic goes away from your home.

Panicked that she just ruined Christmas, Isabelle did what she was told to do in an emergency, call 911.



"To her, it was an emergency when she touched the elf, and she's going to ruin Christmas, so that was her emergency. In her mind, she did right, and it was fine with us." said Old Bridge Police Lt. Joseph Mandola. Looks like the Christmas magic is back for one 7-year-old little girl.

The loneliest boy in all of Britain lives on an island with a population of 70 people. His name is Aron and according to the Telegraph, he is the only school aged boy on the island so his closest friends are  "his dog, some ducks and flocks of sheep".

Aron used to have a few friends and brothers to play with but they all left the island to go to secondary school on another island two hours away. He's normally a pretty happy kid but his mother expressed some concern now that he's really the only kid left on the island.

This prompted a reddit user and moderator on r/Scotland to ask his fellow users to spread some holiday cheer in this post:

Nibbles thinks he’s a dog, and it’s the cutest thing ever.

Watch as this Rouen duck waits patiently for his best human friend Johnny to come home from school, and as soon as the boy is in sight, he completely loses it.

Johnny also greets him with a few kisses on his bill once all the quacking starts dying down a bit.

It’s only a matter of time before he learns to bark.

His owners explain that Nibbles wears a tiny diaper so that he can go on car rides and spend time in their house.

Do yourself a favor and check out the rest of the clips on their YouTube channel.

Here they are going for a walk down the street together set to “Stand By Me.”

And here he is eating Johnny’s homework, just like a dog is supposed to do.

He describes it as just a “typical Friday night with my nature loving daughter,” while she remembers it as the last time she was ever able to look at a bird without bursting into tears.

In this video a dad is hanging out by a pond with his daughter, when she decides to go around the other side to pay a visit to a friendly goose.

But the bird does not enjoy being bothered by the pesky human, and so it takes things into his own hands/wings.

While the girl flees and screams in terror, her father finds the whole things absolutely hilarious.

What’s not so funny: the vertical video.
