Like many of us, autumn is a favorite season for me. The morning and evening air is cool and crisp. Hubby is certain the stars sparkle a bit brighter at night. Each time I put the lawn mower away, I can’t help but wonder if perhaps we will be parting ways until spring? All and all….the season makes me feel better. So while I am not really into the scary stuff, I do enjoy sending out a little sweet surprise.
At our local dollar store, I gathered a few goodies.
Then I went to www.beenbooed.com to choose a “boo” print-out. This is one time you can boo someone and they’ll like it! 🙂
You must be careful not to get caught leaving your goody on a front porch, co-worker’s desk, or door!
barking dogs are not helpful!
This is fun….try it….be creative. And thanks to my sister, for sharing this tradition with me a few years ago. Guaranteed to produce a smile. 🙂 BOOOOOOOOOOO!
Hope your day RoCkS! Pay it Forward… ♥
When my boys were little we used to do this ~ so much fun!
🙂 I love starting it in our neighborhood!
It is so much fun! 🙂
I’ve been wondering what the best way to do this is! Thanks!
Have fun and let me know how it goes! 🙂 paula
What a fun idea! I’ve never heard of it before.
When my sis lived in Pennsylvania…or was it Michigan….they did this. I can’t imagine the creativity you fam could bring to this!!! 🙂
How fun! I’ve never seen or heard of this before. My kid would have loved to do this when he was little (sorry, he wouldn’t now, but I would!).
Do it! (and report back!!) It’s like a May day, but with candy…and not in May. Ok… never mind….nothing like May day! 🙂
Never got the whole Halloween thing .. doesn’t happen here by us… but I’m sorry it didn’t when I read how the sweets get dished out…
Like you…..I just want those sweets! 🙂
i love this!
Cool idea, huh?
Autumns in Quebec were much like you describe here and it was my fave season there – it was Indian Summer. Autumn here is like winter without snow, no more mowing needed. I miss summer!
Quit teasing me about the mowing! Soon….maybe???
That is such a great yet easy idea that adds that special touch to your neighbor’s goodies! Or co-workers, etc…very cute. Really like it. Keep up the great ideas!
Do you think this would work on a plane?!?! 🙂
It might if you gave it to a flight attendant with a big smile! Maybe they’d give you a better seat. Ha. 🙂
As long as they wouldn’t take it as a threat! I’m all for bribery!
I am afraid, in Germany we are not so much into the Halloween-stuff (except for some “weird” people like me, hee hee) and I even know people who would not really like such a sweet boo-ing. 😦
BUT I do also know some people who would! (who fortunately are not into blogging and won’t read this, now) – So, I will think of something sweet and how I can transfer the energy of the poem into something that works for non-English speakers. 😀
Thank you for the inspiration!
Well I don’t love Halloween either…but the costumes are fun….and I do love to give out good candy. 🙂 People still take their kids door to door here….which when you think about it sound crazy. “Let’s go to a stranger’s house and ask for free candy.”
That said…. a sweet spin could be put on this for many occasions….let me know what you come up with! I know it will be awesome!
Take care….hugs ♥
Do you know that Halloween comes from Ireland and Scotland – a Celtic legacy – it was to chase the evil spirits out from the home before Christmas. We don’t celebrate it in the same massive way as you do in US and in UK & Ireland, but we have lately started with Halloween parties. We, Swedes love to have a good excuse for a good party. What a great idea to send out Boos … can only happen in US.
I didn’t know the history of Halloween until I was in my thirties….then I wondered why on earth it was celebrated in such a festive manner here. I do like to snap photos of the kids in costume AND to share candy. But I cannot imagine sending my own children to the houses of strangers for free treats! 🙂 As for the party excuse….well that makes perfect sense! BOO!
We have a bit like Halloween Thursday before Easter – when all kids dress up and knock doors for sweets. I think it’s pretty safe after all. I think internet is more dangerous for kids thoose days.
BOO … on yourself
Another story entirely on the internet thing….. frightening! Very interesting on the dressing up before Easter. I love hearing about traditions from other places!
We witches fly away on our brooms to “Bålkulla” with our cat in the back and coffee pot in the front. *smile
Maybe I see you there next year. *smile
Ha! Always with the coffee!
Of course … coffee is a MUST in my life. Now time for medicine. Don’t like it at all.
