Have you ever been Boo'd?? Update (red)

Well, Operation Boo was a success tonite!  We managed to Boo FOUR houses without getting caught!  We've also already scoped the houses again and see that they did in fact get the candy and posted their Boo signs on their doors - this is a good indication that this will be a hit in our new 'hood!

Of course, I just realized that if/when WE get Boo'd back, I have to make two more Boo gifts!  LOL

How did everyone else do so far?

I just made a few of these to surprise our neighbors.  It was a tradition in my old neighborhood and I'm hoping to start it in our new 'hood.   Does your neighborhood do this?

Yeh, it probably won't work in your office. Lol We have 175 teachers and another 100 staff so there are plenty of participants.

 Bummer!  My kids love it.  Of course, the first time we did it, we totally got caught by our neighbors kids...we tried to run & hide but they were just too fast for us.  LOL

Yes, because people tend to "boo" those they know will get into it. KWIM I would say 1/3 to 1/2 of the people get involved. We also have a pumpkin carving contest by department. It's VERY competitive. The art and science depts are hard to beat. We do a chilli contest and a costume contest too. It's really a fun time, because homecoming is in there too. Homecoming week is just packed with events too. I love October!!

 AWESOME!  That does sound like fun!  And I had to LOL at the pumpkin carving contest...I bet the art & science departments really are hard to beat!  Too funny!

Sounds like you work with a fun group of people!
