TREND ALERT! Have you heard of the Halloween “booing” phenomenon yet? If not, you should educate yourself now before it happens to you and you’re left in the dark.
“Booing” is where you and your kids creep onto your neighbor’s property in the middle of the night and surround their doorstep, porch, or yard with buckets or bags of candy. Then, you run away and giggle while patiently wait for the morning discovery. It’s like toilet papering, but way nicer. They also call it “ghosting,” but in the dating world, ghosting is a bad thing.
Once you realize that you’ve been “booed,” you announce it to the neighborhood by putting a “We’ve been booed” sign on your window. #HumbleBrag. You must then do the same thing to two more houses, as a way to continue sharing the holiday spirit with your community.
The best part about “booing,” is that it can technically be done for ANY holiday. You can “elf” someone for Christmas, or “egg” them for Easter. My guess is that “egging” has a different meaning to those people than it does to us (since it seems to leave people cheerful instead of furious). You can even leave people alcohol! How thoughtful!
These are all lighthearted, BOOtiful ways to get people in the holiday spirit.
