Hi Crafty Friends!
Halloween is quickly approaching and I’m all for stretching the very most out of holidays as humanly possible! Last week I shared with you our “You’ve Been Booed” Printable and 25 Boo Basket Ideas.
Today I’m sharing with you the adult version of this fun Halloween Tradition– You’ve Been Boozed! It’s a super fun idea for spreading the Halloween spirit among your neighbors, family and friends.
Create a Halloween basket filled with Halloween treats that adults will love including a bottle of wine, some craft beer or your favorite spirits!
Ready to get started? Let’s go!
What Does It Mean To Booze Someone?
Dropping off a “You’ve Been Boozed” basket for adult neighbors and/or friends is a fun way to spread Halloween fun around your neighborhood! It’s kind of like the spooky version of Secret Santa!
This fun Halloween tradition is done in the lead up to October 31st (usually in the month of October… though I see no harm starting up spooky season in September. Its never too early for a fun Halloween surprise!)
The person doing the booing creates a fun basket, box or bucket filled with Halloween treats, candy, small gifts and their favorite Halloween “spirits”.
When booing you play doorbell ditch and leave the boo basket on the doorstep or porch of the person, along with instructions and boo signs for them to spread the Halloween fun to someone else.
When leaving a “You’ve Been Boozed” basket it may be a good idea to stick around until the basket has been brought indoors to make sure that it has been found by an adult of legal drinking age. Just make sure they don’t see you since that ruins the secret!
Once the person has been booed, they put a sign on their front door or in their front window saying that they’ve been booed, so that others know that they’ve already been booed and so other families can join in the fun.
