neighborhood boo

Our house was recently "booed" and I love that our neighborhood has this Halloween tradition. I know a lot of other people across the country do this as well, but for those of you don't, it's not too late to start. You'll be surprised how the excitement spreads around your neighborhood!


 To start the tradition, create 2 bags or baskets of Halloween goodies. This year my bags included pumpkin-shaped cookie cutters, skeleton toys, Halloween stickers, and an assortment of candy. Just be sure to gear it toward the ages of the recipient family. Also, don't forget to include a copy of the "boo" ghost (above) and the "boo" poem (below). The poem includes instructions to the person being "booed," telling them to enjoy their treats, place the “Boo” sign on their front door, copy the sign and note and include them with their treat bags, and secretly deliver to two neighbors. Have fun booing!

Booing is so much fun. I'd like to share another idea with your readers that my friend Claudia shared over at Highlowaha.com...

She made these really cute cones to hang on the doors for Booing...

Check them out!

My old neighborhood did this and I was thinking this year, since we moved, how fun it would be to start this year. But I couldn't find the poem - so thank you!!

in occassion I used a decoration for the house, based in some of the most terrorific books of the history, the famous or infamous Call Of Cthulhu by H.P Lovecraft, I used of the ideas, the rest was take it in Cialis Online.

I love to use this ghost when we "boo" our neighbors and friends. It is so cute and easily visible. Thanks for having a large printable version. I hope this version of the "boo" will continue to be used in our new neighborhood>
