The idea is that someone comes to your house after dark and deposits a bag of treats on your doorstep and then rings the doorbell and runs. Enclosed with the treats is this picture, which you are supposed to hang up on the front door so you don't get BOO'd again, and another page with what is this year a weird poem. The poem instructs you to make two copies of the poem and two copies of the above sheet, and then go BOO 2 other houses within 24 hours.
Last year was our first experience with this, and having never had anything like this type of neighborhood in Texas, I found it kind of a cute way to do something surprising for others. So I pass this on for anyone who would like to try it in their neighborhood.
This year's poem is this:
The air is cool, the season fall
Soon Halloween will come to all.
The spirits are after things to do
In fact, a spirit brought this gift to you.
Boo is the shield from the witching hour
Just hang it up and watch its power.
On your front door or window is where it hangs
It wards off Goblins and their scary fangs.
The treat that came with coupled note
Are yours to keep, enjoy them both.
The power comes when friends like you
Will copy this and make it two.
The others here among our friends
Will give Halloween treats near twilight's end.
We'll all have smile upon our faces
No one will know who "Boo'd" whose places.
Just one short day to work your spell
Work fast and no one tell
And don't forget a nifty treat
Like something cute or something sweet.
Please join the fun - let's really hear it
And spread some "Boo's" and Halloween spirit.
