I posted yesterday about how excited I was to get BOO-zed this Halloween. It was an awesome surprise and one I want to share with as many folks as possible.
With that in mind, I’ve put together this guide on how to “BOO-ze” your friends, complete with links to the “BOO-zed poem” which explains the tradition and a “We’ve Been Boo-zed” ghost picture in an easy to print form. This way there’s nothing stopping you from getting started in your neck of the woods.
For the uninitiated, here’s how it works:
- Select two friends to “BOO-ze”
- Get two strong Halloween-themed bags or plastic pumpkins and fill them with grown-up treats, like good craft beer, a little whiskey, chocolates, cookies, etc. Whatever you think your friends will enjoy or get a laugh out of.
- Print up two copies of the poem and two copies of the ghost and place one of each in each bag
- Wait until it’s dark and leave each bag full of goodies, the poem and the ghost picture on your friends’ doorsteps
When your friend gets their treats, they will be asked to choose two friends to “BOO-ze” and keep the tradition going. It’s kind of like a chain letter, but one you really, really want to get.
Your friends will also be instructed to place the ghost picture in their door so they don’t get “BOO-zed” more than once. That wouldn’t be fair.
We’ve placed link info for this page on the bottom of the poem and the ghost so it’s easy to find and print the documents without having to photocopy them. It should make it easier for them to keep the tradition going that way.
So there you have it. Now get out there and make Halloween memorable for your friends and neighbors!
Also, please consider sharing this page with anyone you think might get into “BOO-zing” – it’s a terrific tradition and we really want it to spread like wildfire.
