You’ve Been Boo-ed!

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… ♥

  1. When my boys were little we used to do this ~ so much fun!

  2. I’ve been wondering what the best way to do this is! Thanks!

  3. What a fun idea! I’ve never heard of it before.

  4. 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!).

    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…

  6. 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!

    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!

  8. Great idea!

    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!

    Much love,

    • 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.
