Just the other day my girlfriend who lives in a different neighborhood asked me if our neighbors were getting “Boo-ed.” She explained it meant that a neighbor left a note and treats on your door step and then you were supposed to pass it on to two other neighbors. You leave a picture of a ghost in your window so neighbors know that you’ve already been visited. (You can find more info at www.beenbooed.com)
I replied no thank goodness. I do not have the time to mess with that. I haven’t even bought my candy yet.
But guess what happened late last night. Yes, we got Boo-ed. So now the dilemma. Do you keep it going or just forget about it?
I will probably go and buy candy tomorrow so will probably keep it going but I am feeling like I don’t have time to be doing it. Hum-bug.
I have also heard it called “ghosting.”
Is this happening in your neighborhood? Are you into it or annoyed?
