Our neighborhood has a fun tradition of “spooking” each other during the month of October. I am not sure who starts it but I’m glad they do. This year, since we only had one teenager left at home, I was afraid we would get left out of the “spooking” but thankfully we didn’t!
I love it each October when my doorbell rings and when I answer there is no one there except a fun Halloween surprise! The idea is that after you are spooked you put together a Halloween surprise and “spook” two other families. You hang a cute pumpkin sign in your window so that people know you have been “spooked” and you don’t get “spooked” twice!
It is fun to watch all the pumpkin signs go up in people’s windows throughout the month.
I made a batch of my white chocolate and candy corn popcorn for our treat. I had some cute Halloween containers in my stash to put the popcorn in. We still have quite a few pumpkins out in our pumpkin patch so we left a pumpkin for each family too.
I guess if any of my neighbors who we “spooked” read my blog the secret is out!!
I took Tessa with me in the car to do the deliveries so she could do the ding dong ditching while I drove the getaway car!
It may be too late this year to start the tradition of “spooking” in your neighborhood but save the idea for next year!
From now until Halloween I will be sharing a fun Halloween idea or treat each week day! Be sure and check back each day to see the Trick or Treat of the Day! Who knows maybe there will even be a trick in there somewhere??? Although I’m much better at treats!
Does your neighborhood have a “spooking” tradition?
