Every year, our neighborhood does that “boo” thing. Have you done it? Sure it’s corny, but you know what, I like it. I don’t know who starts it, there have been years where it’s been mid-October and no one has started it, so I did. Sometimes I use candy, but other times I use little Halloween crafts and trinkets from Oriental Trading Company.
This year, my 8-year-old was really excited to do it, he started asking around Labor Day. Finally I let him start it today. It made him happy, and I wanted to add something this year–the Boo sheet in Spanish translation. So I did. My neighborhood is mixed and while most of the neighbors I have spoken with do speak English, I wanted to make them feel more welcome and be able to include those who need a Spanish version.
This year, I am also ordering these stick on Halloween faces for pumpkins from Oriental Trading. These I will be giving to Kevin’s school.
I don’t know if it’s correct, I just put it in Google translate. Hopefully it is. I googled my little heart out and couldn’t find one already in Spanish, so I figured this should work.
To friends and neighbors near our street;
Our home’s locations made us meet,
You now have been Boo’d, but who could we be?
We’ll never tell, it’s a secret you see.
We placed these goodies for you and yours
Then we ran fast after knocking the door!
Place this Boo on your front door
And make sure you Boo two neighbors of yours!
Boo Abucheo poem in Espanol
A nuestros buenos amigos en nuestra calle;
Las ubicaciones de nuestra casa nos hicieron conocer,
Ahora has sido abucheado, pero ¿quién podríamos ser?
Nunca lo diremos, es un secreto que ves.
Nosotros colocamos estas golosinas para usted y la suya
¡Entonces corrimos rápido después de golpear la puerta!
Coloque este Boo en su puerta delantera
Y asegúrate de que Boo dos vecinos de la tuya!

I hope this makes you smile. I thought that with all the “noise” and suffering and despair that has been around us recently, we could use something that brings people together and makes them smile.
Pin it so you have it!
