Santa’s helper to receive seasonal spy

A lot of people really wanted an elf on their shelves, but Diane Luu-Hoang came out on top in Monday’s DailyNews contest.

Employment equity and human rights manager in the Office of Human Rights, Equity and Accessibility, she will receive an Elf on the Shelf doll and book, which help children stay on Santa’s good side.

Hoang’s entry was drawn from all those which correctly noted that the 2003 film Elf followed the adventures of a human named Buddy, was narrated by Bob Newhart as his adoptive father, and ended with New Yorkers singing Santa Claus is Coming to Town.
