“Boozing” Is the Fun of Halloween “Booing” with an Adult Twist

You might have heard of “booing” your neighbors. It’s often a kid-centric thing, where people leave candy and household trinkets with kids. Well, “Boozing” is the adult version.

A few years ago, on the walk back from booing a few of our neighbors, my daughter mused, “You know, growing up means getting left out of a lot of these traditions. We just Booed a bunch of kids, but what about the adults?”

I joked that maybe we should drop off some wine and call it “Boozing.” Well, it turns out I wasn’t the first person to make that joke—Boozing was already a well-tread tradition.

You can find a variety of “Boooozed” printouts online, but I still use this super-cool retro version by artist Derek Yaniger.

So, how does it work? Just like the candy-focused tradition of Booing someone, you leave your alcohol treat and a printout like the one above for your neighbors.

You can use whatever kind of booze you want to Booze. If you’re looking for an easy pick, check your local liquor store for seasonal spiced wines. And, as we did in the image above, it’s easy to wrap the bottle in some craft paper, slap some Halloween stamps on it, and really up your Boozing presentation game.

But hey, let your heart be your booze guide! It’s also a great time of year for pumpkin ales, hard ciders, or fall-themed cocktail mixers.
