BOSTON, MASS (NBC) - The city of Boston is shouting "Son of a nutcracker" after Buddy the Elf instigated dozens of pillow fights this week.

Firefighter Brendan Edwards was seen running around town trying to spread some Christmas cheer.

Edwards was decked out with the Buddy the Elf costume from the Christmas movie Elf.

Edwards shared videos of the pillow fights online and has received more than a hundred-thousand views!
