We love Halloween.
Our current Halloween traditions include:
Making lots of pipe cleaner spiders;
Driving three hours to Atlanta to celebrate Halloween with our besties,
who do Halloween like nobody’s business.
Every year, our friends do an elaborate haunted scene in their front yard. At the bottom of the picture above is a coffin (a real one!). Rick, the husband/Dad, is a film teacher so everything is REALLY well done. Lights, fog machines, awesome music. Basically, we make people scream (and sometimes run away and cry).
There’s LOADS of free entertainment including but not limited to pre-teen boys who talk a big game as they strut towards us. But then when they get up close, they start to make a wide arc to avoid the entrance of the haunted scene as their smack talk tapers off…
SO. MUCH. FUN.
Well, Halloween is in the middle of the week this year and the kids are in school, so this year will be a little different…
A New Tradition
It’s time for a new tradition! (A “Boo!” Tradition)
Our friends at Hallmark sent us some things we can use to “Boo!” some neighbors. If you’ve never “boo’d” or been “boo’d,” basically you put a gift of halloween items on someone’s front door with a note in a card, ring the doorbell and run away. They hang a copy of the note in the window to indicate they’ve been boo’d. Then they “boo” somebody else.
To help with this new tradition, Hallmark shipped us a box of Halloween fun that you can win with giveaway details below.
The Prize Pack Includes:
My Pet Ghost
The Witch’s Hat Door Decor
It shrieks and and cackles (and it’s weather-proof!).
And a Giant Witch
This card can be used by the person who receives it as a hanging or table decoration.
And of course…cards!
We wrote the card and can’t wait to “Boo” someone!
