I was always afraid of dolls, and I never liked to play with them. And I am a female, I just did not like the way they looked...this must sound
weird, but I understand why your son was afraid. You did the right thing by sending the elf back, and hopefully he will soon forget about his bad
Your story reminded me that my mother used to have a ceramic elf that she made on top of our frig. My younger sister and I always thought that it
moved and that it would give us the evil eye.
We are grown up now, well sort of
, but recently we were cleaning out my mother's house and my
sister said to me "Whatever you do, get rid of the evil elf". Usually I would have teased her, or put the elf on her doorstep, kidding, but I was
amazed that she still remembered that and that she was still afraid of the ceramic elf.
Maybe elves are just scary creatures, for whatever reason.
Edit to add-she only remembered it because we had it for years. I am sure that if it was only there for a short time, she would have already
forgotten about it.
