Have you been out GHOSTING yet?

baystateparent sales rep, Emily Rettig, told us that last night, as she was making dinner and settling the kids in for the evening, the doorbell rang. When she opened it, she found a package on her doorstep filled with trinkets and treats with the following note:

You've Been Ghosted!

Last last night, we left you a treat The tradition is fun, one we hope you'll repeat.
Take the ghost and pit it on your door, to let others kn ow you need ghosting no more.
Now it's your duty to pass on the surprise to two more families, we must advise.
Gather some treats and deliver them soon, within two nights, under the light of the moon.
Include a ghost with each package you give, along with this poem for the tradition to live.

Have you tried this? It's so much fun!! When it gets dark, pile the kids in the car and visit the houses of neighbors and friends. Leave a package on their doorstep with the note (above) and a cut-out paper ghost. The most fun is ringing the doorbell and jumping in the car and leaving before the family answers.

Emily's family loved the surprise so much that today they are visiting the Dollar Store to pick up some fun items to carry on the tradition.

Happy Halloween!!!

We have been ghosted 2x now - my boys love it. We even got a great poem included encouraging us to ghost 3 other families - we call it being 'spooked'... A lot of fun!
