You want to boo your neighbours! Here’s everything you need to know – and a “you’ve been booed”Get a free printable
Halloween is my favorite holiday. It’s all about the candy and the laughs and having a good time.
Since moving to our friendly neighborhood, one tradition we have picked up is to boo our neighbors.
At first I was like – oh man another thing to do – but I decided to lean into it, include our kids, and make it really fun!
We love this Halloween tradition and look forward every year to it.
What is the Halloween Booed?
To Boo your neighbors, you secretly leave them a boo gift – usually a goodie bag or gift basket – on their porch.
The neighbors share it with each other and each give two boo bags to the other. It’s a bit like a pyramid scheme – but for halloween treats. It should spread quickly in the neighborhood!
Baskets usually include a we’ve been booed sign or door hanger so that houses don’t get booed twice, so there’s more for everyone.
It’s a fun halloween tradition for getting in the halloween spirit!
When is it appropriate for you to start booing your neighbors?
October is a great season for it. This leaves plenty of time to allow the growth to spread to many people.
You’ve been Boo’ed basket ideas
You are trying to figure out what you should put in your neighbor’s boo basket. First, pick who you’ll be booing. Then, tailor it for them. Are they married now? Pets? Are you interested?
Stick with trinkets and candy if you are unsure. I like to go to Target’s Dollar Store or Target. I am known for keeping an adult bottle of wine in my wine rack. Nothing fancy – it’s more about the thought than any actual gift.
Here are some ideas for Booed baskets:
- Halloween Candy – split up a big bag across 2 or more boo baskets
- Fall scented candle
- Haloween masks
- Spooky stickers
- Small decor item
- Homemade treats include cookies, brownies and rice krispies.
- Mini pumpkins
- Small Halloween items, such as a fake spider or fake fang, are all acceptable.
Keep it simple. This is not a time to blow your budget.
