Getting Booed

October 27, 2010

Hi all, how’s your fall?  Are you enjoying the cooler weather, the falling leaves, and the colors of the season? 

How gorgeous is this display at my local grocer around the corner?  A perfect harvest scene!  It just doesn’t get much better than this . . .

Except when you arrive home to find a little treat bag on your door, and you have no idea who left it there.  This is the second time this week a treat bag has arrived anonymously on our front porch.

We’ve been BOOed!

I had never heard of this Boo Game until this year, my family and I are smitten with it!   These anonymous ‘Boo’ treat bags are akin to the ‘Secret Santa’ and they are a fun way to spoil your friends and good neighbors.  Perhaps you’ve been BOOed too?

This is especially fun with small children, and ours all happen to live in same neighborhood and attend the same local public school so they are all giddy with excitement at school trying to find out who BOOed who.

We’ve been BOOed twice, so we decided it was our turn to spread the BOO around yesterday.

The game is simple.  You fill the treat bags with inexpensive Halloween delights, then include the Boo Poem, like this one I recreated (below), and you secretly leave it on your neighbor’s doorstep.

Then you send out your fellow conspirators to do the deed.

BOOing someone else is always kept a secret.

    

We hope you’re having just as much fun as we are in the lead up to Halloween.  Have you ever been BOOed?

 

**** Update:  I’ve learned you’re supposed to include a picture of a ghost for the recipient to post on the front door or in a window for others to know they’ve been ‘BOOed’.   Something kinda sorta like this:

We hope you’re having just as much fun as we are in the lead up to Halloween.  Have you ever been BOOed?
