What Are Halloween Boo Bags?
Halloween boo bags are a fun tradition to start with family, friends or neighbors. The idea is that an anonymous treat bag is left on the porch of the family chosen by the giving family. This treat bag includes a few fun items for the kids in the house and leaves instructions for the family to “pay it forward” and treat another family of their choosing.
Important note: This is an anonymous act of kindness. The family who receives your boo bag should not know who it is from.
If doing this in a neighborhood the idea would be that each family will eventually get “booed!” It is common practice to include a note about what the idea behind the bag is as well as a way to let other people know that your house has already been booed in order to give another family a chance to be chosen.
