“Why did Santa’s little helpers sit outside the restaurant?"/"They wanted to eat elfresco.”

A Christmas riddle is:

Q: Why did Santa’s little helpers choose the outside table?
A: They wanted to eat elfresco.


“Elfresco” (elf + al fresco) is a portmanteau word. The riddle was posted on Twitter on December 13, 2015.


Wikipedia: Al fresco dining
Al fresco dining or dining alfresco is eating outside.

Culture
In temperate climates, al fresco dining is especially popular in the summer months when temperatures and weather are most favorable. It is a style of dining that is casual and often party-like in its atmosphere.
