The Christmas season is here, which means Elf will be playing in homes worldwide. There are tons of opportunities left in December to watch it on Hulu, Amazon Prime, and Max. Plus, 2023 marks the major 20th anniversary, so there's no better time than the present to act just like Will Ferrell's iconic movie character Buddy The Elf. If you want to eat like Buddy too, make this sweet Elf pasta recipe for breakfast. Plus, you can hit two of the four main food groups, candy, candy canes, candy corn, and syrup.

If you're looking for even more Elf-themed food, rest assured, the grocery store is decked out in Elf collabs for the major anniversary. You can pick up Elf Pillsbury Sugar Cookie Dough and can even transform them into ice cream sandwiches and cheesecake bars. Plus, you can score limited-edition Elf Goldfish Grahams in a maple syrup flavor at retailers such as Target. Of course, you can also sweeten up your movie watch party with Brach's Swirly Twirly Gum Drops and Candy Cane Forest Mellowcremes.
