Updating this fun “You’ve Been Booed Printable” post that I shared a few years ago! This Halloween tradition continues throughout the neighborhood. There is nothing more exciting for a little kid than to be booed! When my son was no longer little, he did decide to participate by starting the trend for his young neighbors. Seeing these Boo signs in many windows is always fun!
I had never heard about being booed until we moved to the suburbs. My son was 4 or 5 and of course, Halloween was the most exciting thing in his WHOLE life! He had been dressing up for a couple of weeks and practicing his “trick or treating” by going out on the porch at night, ringing the doorbell and waiting for us to answer. Of course, he was the cutest thing ever because he was wearing a cowboy hat and his pajamas. (My kid would NEVER wear a mask, makeup or a wig….finding a costume was always a challenge)
One early evening as it was dusk, the doorbell rang, we opened the door and found a bag of candy on the step with a note attached. Oh, the mystery! The excitement! It’s all he talked about for days and of course, he couldn’t WAIT to boo 2 more neighbors!
Now that he’s 14, we haven’t booed anyone for a while, but maybe we should boo the little ones on the block. And then just hang back and watch!
