Ready to pull some Halloween hijinks? Play “You’ve Been Booed!” All you do is sneak up to the doorstep (or at work, the office door) of an unsuspecting friend, anonymously leave a treat and this door hanger, and skedaddle. Will your target figure out who mischievously left the treat, or be left baffled? The fun continues when they pay it forward to others.
