I've Been Booed!!

Last night, I was sitting in my recliner watching an old episode of "Ray" when the door bell rang. After getting past our fierce dogs , I opened the door to find no one in sight. I finally looked down and found a Halloween Basket full of goodies! At first, I thought it must be from my school Secret Pal but then I thought, no... she has already "gifted" me for October. Well, the basket contained a poem that explained it all.

The Phantom Ghost has come to town,
To leave goodies you have found.
If you do not wish a curse to fall
You must continue this ghostly call.

First, post this ghost where it can be seen
And leave it there till Halloween.
This will scare other visiting ghosts away.
Be sure to participate, don't delay.

Second, make two treats,
Two ghosts, and
Two notes like this.

Deliver it to two neighbors that might have been missed.
Don't let them see you, be sneaky, no doubt...
(And make sure they put their Booed Ghosts out!)***

Next, you will have only one day to act, so be quick!
Leave it at the doors where the ghost has not hit!
Deliver it at dark when there is no light...
Ring the doorbell and run, and stay out of sight!!!

And last but not least, enjoy the season.
Don't worry, be happy for all the right reasons.
Be cool, have fun and remember, don't be seen!
Share the Spirit of Halloween!!

It was so much fun!! Unfortunately, I had our Fall Festival for school tonight and couldn't exactly make the one night turn around for the "Booed" chain but I WILL be "Booing" two fellow neighbors tomorrow night!!

I just love stuff like this!!!

How fun! We have done something like this in the past - it was called the Hob Goblin! Reminds me of what fun it was - maybe I'll do it again!
