So We've Been "Boo'd"...

Not sure what to make of this one, maybe I have just been missing all the fun in past years... but this evening when I opened the front door I walked out to find a metal pail full of candy and other festive Halloween items. There was a note included:


You've been BOO'd!
Since this is the time for goblins and bats,
Halloween spirits and ghosts and cats,
Weird happenings and witches brew,
These are the things we wish for you:
My the only ghost that comes to stay,
Be the Holy Ghost to guide your way.
May the only spirits you chance to meet,
Be the spirits of love and friendship sweet.
May the only trick you are asked to do,
Be the treat of helping a child or two.
These are our Halloween wishes for you,
And may God bless you in all you do.
So the kids are now in bed and I am sitting here pondering who dropped this on the doorstep, was it a neighbor? A Friend? A random do- gooder? (As if I don't have enough to get done in the next week... this will be interesting!) We are new to the neighborhood, so it may very well be a tradition that no one has clued me in on yet. After some research I found this website to clue me in to the phenomenon ( http://organizedchristmas.com/youve-been-booed ).
(And yes, I will be making a trip to the local party store tomorrow to get some goodies for a pail to go "BOO"
some unsuspecting person. Why not? It is a cute idea!)
