As a child Scooby-doo was a little more than I could handle. Now as an adult, I watch a episode of Criminal Minds and I'm on edge the rest of night, thinking someones behind every door to kill me .
Keeping that in mind;
I took the girls out late the other night through our neighborhood to play the game Boo!
If your not familiar with the game;
This is a Boo Sign~
The air is cool, the season, Fall;
Soon Halloween will come to all!
The spooks are after things to do,
In fact a spook brought this to you!
"Boo" is a shield of the witching hour,
Just hang it up and watch the power!
On your front door is where it works;
It wards off spooks and scary jerks!
The treat that came with this cryptic note,
Is yours to keep, enjoy them both!
The power comes when friends like you,
Will copy this note and make it TWO!
The others here among our friends,
Will give them warm fuzzies that will not end!
We'll all have smiles on our faces,
But no one knows who "BOO'ED" whom!
Just two short days to work your spell,
Or one big ZAP will strike your tail!
And don't forget a nifty treat,
Like something cute and something sweet!
Please join the fun, lets really hear it,
spread the "BOOS" and Halloween SPIR IT!
You should "ghost" these people within 2 days of receiving your treat.
Hang the ghost on your front door so that everyone can see that you have been "ghosted" and will not ghost you again. This will also let you know who you can ghost.
Fill 2 bags with candy, treats, or if you know them well enough to add something special, a nice gift (I wine and cheesed my neighbor). Copy this letter and the ghost twice. Include treats, letter, and ghost in your bag of goodies for the neighbors that you choose.
After dark, and only with an adult, "ghost" 2 of your neighbors. Do not let the person that you are "ghosting" see you, for it adds to the fun of it all. Place the treat bag on the doorstep, ring the doorbell and run!
It will be fun to see how many ghosts will appear in our neighborhood by Halloween.
Please keep it safe and enjoy!
Here where we live it gets dark at 6:00pm and in our neighborhood have no streetlights. So, when we left at 8:30 it was good and dark. You could barely see your hand in front of your face. Ideal for us not wanting to be seen as we roamed the streets quietly. We had three houses we were planning to hit, in hopes at least two of the three would keep it going. Knowing our victims, the fear of getting shot for sneaking around wasn't an issue. The first house went off without a hitch. We were like a stealth fighter, in, out, gone and undetected. Even with the under breath giggles!
Out of breath,we rounded the corner to hit our other two houses, when we came to one dilemma. They were right next door to one another, not being seen would be tricky. In the dark we spotted a big truck parked in the road, and plotted to hide behind it in between hitting each house. That way if someone came out looking after the first one we could hide safely until they went back inside. After that we had a park to cross and we would be home free. So far, the street had been dead silent so we thought this would be cake.
