Santa’s Elf Lost His Boot in This Hidden Picture—Can You Find It?

Most people took more than 2 minutes to spot it.

Between festive parties, all the gift shopping, and the rush to decorate, the holiday season gets crazy for us all—but even crazier for Santa’s workshop. In a brainteaser from Attic Self Storage, one of St. Nick’s frazzled elves lost his boot in the shuffle, and that’s the last thing he should be worrying about. Who else will finish wrapping the presents and loading Santa’s sleigh?

The average person took 139 seconds to find the little boot. In that time, Santa could have visited 2,694,724 homes, per Attic Self Storage’s estimations. There’s not a moment to lose! Can you find the boot faster?

Elf feet are famously tiny, so look closely. The elf made a fashionably festive choice with his red and green boots, but those colors blend in with the rest of the Christmas decorations in Santa’s storage unit.
