The feeling of being overworked, underappreciated and like you don't exist to others during the holidays while in actuality the season's success depends on you.

The sense of being 3 feet small when others would view you in high stature if they realized all you do to make the holiday's happen.

Feeling under appreciated most of the time; being a three-foot-tall adult who makes toys for one day of the year. When someone says you have elf-esteem (unless you're already short) it's usually an insult, or they are calling you glum.
Katy looks like she woke up with elf-esteem. Look at her watching TV and taking apart her cell-phone.
