When someone yells "pillow fight!", it's a down-home fun time, but when Buddy the Elf yells it in the middle of downtown Portsmouth, that's a whole other level of fun.

Parents, you all know what it's like when your child gets all sugared up on candy and sweets.  Well, according to The Music Hall's Facebook page, that's exactly what happened to Buddy the Elf when he took a break from Elf: The Musical, playing at the hall through December 18.

He must have had a big lunch of the main food groups for elves.

In the words of Buddy the Elf,

We elves try to stick to the four main food groups: candy, candy canes, candy corns, and syrup.

There's something magical about the movie and the play.  The story uncovers our inner child and warms our hearts in the most giving time of year.
