We've been Boo-ed!

A new activity has kicked off the fall season with the kids - Booing!  It's like Trick-or-Treating in reverse. While I was at work the family heard a knock, opened the door to see not a person but a poem with some candy attached:

Here's the link
BOO Sign/Poem - Ghost SilhouetteThe poem explains how you go to a neighbor's house, leave the treat with the poem and ring the bell and hide. If they hang the We've been Booed! sign then the rest of the neighborhood knows they've already received a Booing and could possibly be Booing next.

The kids are having a lot of fun with it and maybe it's not such a bad thing to practice giving rather than just Trick-or-Treating. Just think what you could do with this poem if you reworded it to reflect the giving spirit of Jesus just around the corner at Christmas rather than Halloween spirits...............

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 from witching hour
Just hang it up and watch its power
On your front door is where it hangs
It wards off spooks and bats with fangs
The treats that came with crypted note
Are yours to keep, enjoy them both
The power comes when friends like you
Will copy this and make it two
Then others here among our friends
Will give warm fuzzies that do not end
We'll all have smiles upon our faces
No one will know who "Boo"ed whose places
And don't forget a nifty treat,
Like something cute or something sweet
Please join the fun, let's really hear it
And spread some "BOO"s and Halloween Spirit
