BOOOO on our neighbors! ETA

We Boo'd 4 different houses - each house has their BOO posted on their door but, not only have WE not been Boo'd back - I do not see any Boo signs on other neighbors' doors.

Pretty disappointed in these folks...

Lucky thought that my kids got Boo'd at their Dad's house - in my old neighborhood, no less!  LOL

Hope everyone else's Booing is more successful than mine!

Happy Fall Ya'll!

 

WOW - CM takes my post that is meant for my group and posts it for all others.   I have this to say...

1 - This is a spin off of another post in MY GROUP, therefore it was posted as an update for MY GROUP.

2 - This was purely for FUN - for my kids AND my neighbors kids.  Am I disappointed for my kids that this didn't catch on in our new neighborhood?  Yes but that's life.  It doesn't mean I won't Boo again.

Maybe CM wonders what every CM member's opinion is on this but frankly, I don't care what any of you mean spirited people think and will not respond to the rude replies.

one more edit - I have come realize that most of the replies have been kind - so thank you!  I am trying to respond to the ones with questions about how to do this!  In the nutshell:

You simply put together a treat (doesn't have to be fancy or expensive - I made the cones out of cardstock - they don't hold much) and use a Boo poem + sign (I found mine on Pinterest).  You usually Boo 2 neighbors and the idea is for them to pass it along by boo'ing 2 other neighbors.  If  it catches on - every house in the neighborhood should be Boo'd by Halloween.  You Boo the neighbors by leaving it 'anon' on their front doorstep - some folks ring the bell & run.  This was something my kids & I did in our old neighborhood.  Some kids got so into it, they would chase you down if you tried the 'ring & run' part!  We got caught a few times in the old 'hood!  LOL

I don't think I've heard of this. You just put a 'Boo' sign on someones door?

 Maybe they've just never heard of it and have no idea there is supposed to be a reciprocation involved? I've never heard of this. If a BOO sign showed up I woud throw it out and have no clue why it had been put there.

 That's too bad- maybe they just haven't gotten a chance to do so yet? I know it took me a bit longer than it should have to pass on the Boo the first yr.

Oh, I guess ya'll didn't see my post from before.  LOL  I put these on their doors...

The 'instructions' are on the cone as well as their own copies rolled up inside the cone for Boo'ing others.

Oh ok. If I got that on my door I think I would be pretty excited! I'd definitely start 'boo'ing people lol.

 Maybe so...I dunno, it's been almost an entire week and even if our house wasn't the one boo'd I would expect to see another house boo'd by now - especially with us starting it by Boo'ing four different houses.

Oh well - we'll try again next year! =0)

We love Boo-ing!  My daughter and my neighbor keep booing each other back with little treats (I know, we're breaking the rules but it's so cute!)

 My old neighborhood loved doing this - I was hoping this neighborhood would get into it as well.  After seeing everyone post their signs on their doors, I expected it to spread quickly but I guess I was wrong.

Maybe next year!
