I’ve been BOO-ed! That’s right! This neighborhood tradition of scaring up friends has arrived at my doorstep and couldn’t be happier! Inside my package is a sign that says “I’ve Been Boo’d” along with a cute little poem that says:
The air is cool, the season fall,
Soon Halloween will come to all.
Ghosts and goblins, spooks galore…
Tricky witches at your door.
The spooks are after things to do,
In fact a spook brought this “Boo” to you!
The excitement comes when friends like you,
Copy this note and make it two.
We’ll all have smiles upon our faces,
No one will know who “BOO”ed who’s places!
Just two short days to work your spell,
Keep it secret, hide it well.
No one knows how this tradition began, but we do know that it’s the perfect way to spread the Halloween spirit to your friends and neighbors. Ever since my first BOO five years ago, I’m now usually the first person to start the tradition on my street, no matter where I live.
