Welcome to the world of Halloween BOO-ing!
Sometimes called “Ghosting” or “the Phantom”, the Halloween BOO is an Autumn take on Secret Santa or even a May Basket.
Typically BOO-ing has been for children but over the past couple of years it has exploded in popularity with the new, “You’ve Been BOOzed” for adults. Whichever you choose, BOO-ing is a friendly tradition for Halloween fun! Will your house be next?
To start a Halloween BOO, one neighbor secretly leaves a small gift basket, a BOO poem, BOO instructions and a BOO sign at a neighbor’s doorstep.
The lucky BOO-ee is asked to post the sign near the door, alerting others that “We’ve Been BOO-ed!” That way, new BOO recruits won’t leave a duplicate BOO on the doorstep.
In turn, the neighbor is asked to BOO two other households, leading to a chain reaction and loads of Halloween fun.
