Boo your neighbours this Halloween.
These days people seem to have less and less interaction with their neighbours so now is the time to change that and have a little fun with the people nearby. A recent trend has popped up in the US and is starting to spread around the world, it's called "Booing" and is a fun way to spread the Halloween cheer and create some mischief around the suburbs all through the month of October. The best way to describe Booing would be, a cross between a Knock-and-Run and a Secret Santa.
The art of the Boo:
First you will need to choose two neighbours to pass the boo on to that do not have an "I've Been Booed" sign by their door. Next you need to fill a goodie bag of some sort, whether it be a decorated paper bag or a plastic one from the shops, with sweets and chocolate and maybe some unusual surprises. Make sure to put an "I've Been Booed" sign in your treat bag as well to let other surrounding neighbours know that the household you've chosen has already received a Boo. Attach a Booing poem to the outside of your treatbag and you're set to go!
Next comes the fun part. When no-one is around you must sneakly creep to your selected household's front door. Leave the Boo treat bag by their front door, ring the door bell and then run,run,run! The aim is not to be seen so make sure you are as quiet and quick as possible. It is probably best to go Booing in the evening as people will be less likely to see you when you speed off into the distance.
Now all you have to do is wait and watch the Boo travel around your neighbourhood as each receiver of the Boo carries on the tradition. And perhaps someone will be so kind as to leave you a Boo,too!
