Default "BOO" Poem

We recently moved to a new neighborhood where there are lots of kids. I want to "BOO" some of the neighbors, but need the poem that goes with the package.

What you do is fill a bag with Halloween treats and make a BOO sign on orange paper. You deliver it to the recipients house after dark .. leave it on the doorstep, ring the doorbell and RUN! Don't get caught. The recipient is supposed to hang the BOO sign on their front door, and then BOO two other people who have not already been BOO'd.

Anyway ... to get to my point ... there is a cute little poem that goes with this package, but I can't seem to find it anywhere. If anyone has it, or knows where I can find a copy, please let me know.

Thanks a bunch!

The air is cool the season fall
Soon Halloween will come to all
The spooks are after things to do
In fact, a spook brought this to you
“BOO? is a shield from witching hour
Just hang it up and watch its power
On your front door is where it works
It wards off spooks and scary jerks
The treats that came with crypted note
Are yours to keep, enjoy them both
The power comes when friends like you
Will copy this and make it TWO
Then others here among our friends
Will give warm fuzzies that do not end
We’ll all have smiles upon our faces
No one will know who “BOO?ed whose places
Just one short day to work your spell
Or a big ZAP will strike your tail
And don’t forget a nifty treat,
Like something cute or something sweet
Please join fun, let’s really hear it
And spread some “BOO?s and Halloween spirit.

Here's what you do:
1. Place BOO in your window for neighbors to see (after receving a BOO).
2. Pass two "scare" packages on to your neighbors who haven't been "BOO"ed yet including poem and BOO pictures.
3. Watch to see the fun spread around the neighborhood.


or..
Happy Halloween
This treat is for you, we hope you enjoy.
The idea is simple, one we hope you employ.
You pass "BOO" along to two other neighbors.
Along with any kind of Halloween favors.
If we all do our part, and spread the good cheer,
By Halloween night it will be very clear,
We're a friendly bunch, we like to share fun
So please do your part to keep "BOO" on the run!

We do this in my neighborhood-have fun!

We were "haunted" this year and this was attached to the bag and ghost.

The phantom haunts you happily
from now through Halloween,
and was delivered by a friend
and hopefully not seen!
Someone, somewhere selected you
to receive this happy spell.
Display your phantom on your window
or door so all can spy that you have already
been haunted by a friend.
Then fix three sacks of goodies
and haunt someone else.
HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!

Default BOO Poem

The Phantom poem that I have is a little different.

The Phantom haunts you happily
from now through Halloween
and was delivered by a friend
who (hopefully) was not seen.
The spirit of the neighborhood
has come to wish you well.
Someone, somewhere, selected you to
recieve this happy spell.
You must display the Phantom on
your door so all can spy
that you're already haunted by
this happy little guy.
Then fix three sacks of goodies
like the one given to you.
Ring someone's bell and
leave a bag and make
them happy too!

Default BOO Poem

Good evening y'all,
They say you can't teach an "old dog" new tricks. They lied!! This is the cutest idea I've seen in a long time. I've lived in several different states and overseas and never heard of this before. I want someone to BOO me.
Elizabeth

I forgot to tell you that with the phantom poem you put a cut out ghots in the bag and that is what they put on their door.

Happy Halloween!!!

In our neighborhood you get 'ghosted'. Though we don't get cute poems like you did! I'll try and add one of those poems next year.

Ours said:

Happy Halloween

Now it's your turn to "ghost" two other people in your neighborhood
You should "ghost" these people within 2 days of receiving your treat.
Hang the ghost on your front door so that everyone can see that you have been "ghosted" and will not ghost you again. This will also let you know who you can ghost.
Make 2 Halloween treats, 2 copies of this letter and 2 paper ghosts.
Now you are ready to "ghost" 2 of your neighbors. Do not let the person that you are "ghosting" see you, for it adds to the fun of it all. Place the treat bag on the doorstep, ring the doorbell and run!
It will be fun to see how many of the ghosts will appear in our neighborhood by Halloween.
Please keep it safe and enjoy!
You've Been "Ghosted"
