Before these famous cartoons went viral, Santa was depicted either as a tall, thin, and less than jolly fellow or an elfin man.
Mickey Rooney, the elfin actor who could pull out all the stops on stage and on film, died Sunday in Los Angeles at the age of 93.
The elfin King nodded his handsome head with hearty kindness, and Johannes thanked him, greatly delighted.
She forgot that her boy was of elfin as well as of mortal race.
I dont know whether its elfin laugh or its cry seems the most uncanny.
"I kick for joy," she said, her eyes shining with elfin delight.
The elfin creature sprang to his feet, and taking off his cap, bowed very politely.
"And he promised me half his kingdom and the hand of his cousin the Princess," said elfin.
The elfin race were supposed to be on the watch for unchurched or unsained mothers to have the benefit of their milk.
So she started off to get the bottle, but she would not let elfin come with her.
