Dear Boo-ed,


Have you even been "BOO-ED"? Well, my roommates and I got boo-ed the other day. It is sort of like Christmas but in October. Someone comes, rings your doorbell, and leaves you a YUMMY treat on your step with a poem. The poem usually goes something like this:

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!

Then you hang up this sign in your window and go BOO someone else. It actually was one of the most exciting parts of Halloween growing up. I am glad we got BOO-ED so I could keep living my childhood dreams.
