We were ghosted last night. Here is what the accompanying paper says:

You've been Ghosted!

Late last night, we left you a treat.
The tradition is fun, one we hope you'll repeat.

Take the ghost and pin it on your door,
to let the others know, you need ghosting no more.

Now it's your duty to pass on the surprise,
to at least one more family we must advise.

Gather some treats and deliver them soon,
within two nights, under the light of the moon.

Include a ghost with each package you give,
along with this poem for the tradition to live.

 The reverse of the paper has "instructions" - we are supposed to ring doorbell after dark after leaving a bag of candy and the ghost taped to the door - and don't get caught! We collect a copy of the poem and ghost from the originator's house and leave our ghost on the door so we don't get ghosted again... We can't agree on which house to ghost tonight. The one a block away or down the bottom of the hill. The bummer of it all - we had to go buy some candy today...  ;-)
