Elf Bowl is the name of a very popular Christmas game that makes the rounds each Christmas. It does not contain a virus that pops up at Christmas. It is just a fun, silly game. Don't be afraid of it. Send the person who sent you the hoax a piece of coal for Christmas. You can download the game here.
Here is the email - Remember the warning is a FAKE:
TO ALL IF YOU HAVE RECEIVED ELF BOWL. DO NOT OPEN. YOU MUST DELETE THEM COMPLETELY OUT OF YOUR SYSTEM AS ELF BOWL HAS A DELAYED VIRUS THAT WILL BE ACTIVATED ON CHRISTMAS DAY AND WILL WIPE OUT YOUR SYSTEM. LET EVERYONE KNOW OF THIS.
