    We had a wonderful surprise a few days ago, thought I'd share! I went out my front door at about 9pm to grab something from my trunk and found a pumpkin bowl filled with Halloween treats... we'd been booed!

    Here's a site that explains it:

    We chose our two friends and bought the goodies yesterday and I delivered them under the cover of darkness last night. Duckie made the final decision on who to boo: her little friend that just started homeschooling recently because of the amount of illness in our schools right now; and her bff whose father is being laid off next month.

    It was great fun and I highly recommend it! :ghoul:

    I've never heard of this before -- what a lovely and fun tradition. Glad you and Duckie enjoyed receiving as well as spreading joy.

    That's a really cute idea! I do have to tell you that when I read the subject header I thought that something had gone wrong with cheerleading...

    Much relieved to hear it was something nice.

    This is such a cute idea - I passed it along to everyone on my email list.

    I am assuming that other needed items can be put into that "Booing" basket along with Halloween treats for those in need!

    totoro Mom? What's a GFG?

    I had completely forgotten about this tradition! I had this happen to me a few times in Indiana.
    I may do this here again.

    As avid May-basket-ers, this will give us a chance to do it TWICE a year! WOOHOO, the kids will love it.

    I got booed this afternoon too. My neighbors and I have been doing this for several years and it is always fun.

    What is a May basket?
