Boo! Boo! Boo! What Will We Do?

Halloween has a Germanic / Celtic origin that goes back to ancient Druid time. It was a time of celebrating the change of seasons and was held on the eve of All Saints or All Hallow (to make holy) Day.

In modern day, Halloween has become a time of ghosts, goblins and spooks. Many entertaining events are held at this time of year to celebrate Halloween. In your neighborhoods, you can find Haunted Hayrides, Haunted Corn Mazes, Haunted Castles and Houses, Ghost Walks and Tours, and Costume Parties or Dances.

October brings a chill to the air as fall arrives. Homes become decorated with the orange symbols of the pumpkin. Corn husks, Indian corn and happy scarecrows adorn many a home, all in celebration of Halloween.

The times of widespread happy little costumed children roaming neighborhood is dwindling in this fast paced world we live in. Some continue to carry on the tradition by visiting known homes with their little trick or treaters. Some communities, hold organized events so as to not let the traditions die completely. In other communities, private homes may host Halloween parties for their children and friends. These are clearly safer alternatives that will allow kids to enjoy the fun of costuming and other fall rituals.

Boo! Boo! Boo! What will we do? is a cute little Halloween ditty that is sung to the tune of the Christmas Riendeer song Up on the Rooftop. Teach this fun little song to the kids to sing while celebrating Halloween in whatever manner you choose.

All through the town floats monsters' breath,
Screams of horror, hints of death.
Down all the streets come the girls and boys
All dressed up for their haunting joys.

Boo! Boo! Boo! What will we do?
Boo! Boo! Boo! What will we do? Ooo
Try to enjoy this scary scene
And just relax, 'cause it's Halloween!!

Witches and goblins now fill the air,
Spiders crawl across your hair!
And every place that you try to hide
Soon there's a ghostie there by your side.

Boo! Boo! Boo! What will we do?
Boo! Boo! Boo! What will we do? Ooo
Try to enjoy this scary scene
And just relax, 'cause it's Halloween!!

There is a chill about this night
Your head starts ting-a-ling with fright.
In jack-o-lanterns' eerie glow
The vampires now start swooping low.

Boo! Boo! Boo! What will we do?
Boo! Boo! Boo! What will we do? Ooo
Try to enjoy this scary scene
And please come back next Halloween!!
