Be "Boo-ed"

Every year around Halloween a little game is played in our neighborhood of "Boo-ing" each other. One family starts by leaving Halloween treats on someone's porch along with a piece of paper that has a picture of a ghost and this poem:

You've Been Boo-ed!

The phantom ghost has come to town
To leave some goodies... I see you've found.
If you wish to make this a happier fall...
Continue this greeting, this phantom call.

First, post this Phantom where it can be seen,
And leave it there until Halloween.
This will scare other Phantoms who may visit.
Be sure to participate, you don't want to miss it!

Second, make two treats & two copies from
Deliver them to two neighbors, try to stay calm.
Don't let them see you, be sneaky, no doubt
And make sure they put their Phantom Ghost out!

Next, you have only one day to act, so be quick!
Leave it at doors where the Phantom hasn't hit.
Deliver at dark when there isn't much light...
Ring the doorbell and run, and stay out of sight!!

And last, but not least, come join in the season.
Don't worry, be happy, you need no good reason.
This is all in good fun and we are just trying to say...
Happy Halloween & Have a Great Day!
It's so much fun being sneaky at night dropping treats on someone's porch while not being seen, and the kids really get a kick out of it too! We got "Boo-ed" last night, so you know we'll be sneaking out tonight to "Boo" others!
