We Were Boo-ed

| October 24, 2011 | Comments (1)

The first time it happened, we didn’t even know we’d been boo-ed.  We opened our front door to find an orange, plastic pumpkin with treats and a poem.  The second time it happened, the doorbell rang.  By the time we opened the front door, the goblins were gone.  The treats spilling out of orange, plastic cups sat on our front porch with a ghost and a poem.

Now it’s our turn.  We’re going to boo several friends this weekend.  I went to You’ve Been Boo-ed to print out the neighborhood version to include with our pumpkins.  We have several extra pumpkins from different parties that we can fill with treats.  The only argument in our house is who to boo.  The poem asks you to boo two other people.  Since we’ve been boo-ed twice, we figure we’ll boo four households.  Of course, we have six potential families, so we might just boo them all.

Who will you boo?  It’s easy and fun to spread a little Halloween fun.  Why not join in the fun?

  1. I’ve never heard of this tradition, but it sounds really fun. Will have to give it a try when the kids are a little older!
