We've been booed

A cool thing happened today: we were booed.

Sometime in the morning a sneaky neighbor left a basket on our front door, with a note.

The note said that we had been booed.

I had heard of Secret Santas, but never of Secret Halloweeners. I went to the website listed on the note, and apparently this is a new tradition.

Even though I am not a big fan of Halloween, this is something that fosters good feelings, so I'm all for it. I love surprises, and this was a sweet thing to do.

We unpacked the basket and found some interesting loot

The note had a little poem, and instruction on how to keep the Boo going around the neighborhood. We now have to put the sign with the little ghost on our door, prepare two Boo baskets, and secretly deliver them to two homes without a Boo sign.

My husband suggested that instead of candy and cheetos we should put carrot sticks and tofu. If we did that, then we'd really get booed. I think I'm going to go for some beer and potato chips. Later on tonight I'll sneak out and deliver the baskets to the theme of Mission Impossible.

Have you heard about this new tradition? What do you think?
