A few years back I found a small container full of goodies left on my desk at work. Inside was a little note explaining that I had been “boo”-ed. (sample “boo” letter here or here.) How fun was that to find a surprise of goodies! Well, part of the “boo” note suggests that you carry on the booing for the season and “boo” your own unsuspecting victims.
So I gathered some goodies and a cute little container and “boo”-ed my first victim. Oooh, was that fun! It was especially fun when they were trying to figure out who had “boo”-ed them! So I took it outside of work and “boo”-ed a few houses! It has become a fun little tradition now. And I am currently in the process of thinking of who I might “boo” this year!
I thought it would be fun to put together a list of suggested items to include in your “boo” container. Included below is a list of ideas for containers. And first, maybe an idea of who to “boo”. I encourage you to leave your own suggestions in the comments. Also, let us know if you plan to “boo” someone you know! Have you been “boo”-ed?

Anything that might relate to the person you are booing
A "boo" does not need to be ellaborate, keep it simple and fun! Now what are you waiting for? To “boo” or not to “boo”!
