How to Spook the Neighbors
When Halloween comes around in my neighborhood, we tend to go a bit overboard.
This arrived on my doorstep last night.
Every year, we “spook” each other with surprise gift baskets or bags filled with all kinds of Halloween goodies! Usually, the treats are geared towards the kids but this year, someone thought of the adults in the house!
As you can see, my “secret ghost” this year was quite generous!
Not only do I just love the basket, but the chocolate treats inside and the bottle of wine are right up my alley.
Look at this cute wooden sign. I should have no problem finding a spot for this.
Inside the basket are the directions to continue the “spookfest.”
As instructed,I attached my ghost to the front door to mark that I have been spooked. Now I must go shopping for treats for two more neighbors and make my deliveries without getting caught!

So, if you want to “spook” your neighbors, make a variation of the above instructions or go to: www.beenbooed.com. They have some really cute ones that can be printed out!
This can be such a great way to add some fun to your neighborhood and helps to build a sense of community. Who says Halloween is just for kids?
Do you do spook your neighbors?
Lucky girl. I wish a basket of wine and chocolate would magically appear at my door 🙂

Wow this looks like fun! We don't really do halloween in Australia. It's looks like a fun way to get the neighbourhood together though. Have a lovely day! Leahx
Wow, you certainly have very generous neighbors! Lucky you! Chocolate and wine?? What a perfect combination!!
Of course now I am running around in the rain today shopping for the next 2 neighbors! It's fun though!-Shelley
This is so fun! I wish my neighborhood would do something like this. I feel like they wouldn't really participate though… So nice that you guys are able to do this though 🙂
