Brentwood, NH celebrated their annual TRICK OR TREAT last evening, Oct 30th from 5pm to 7pm. There were all kinds of strange happenings in the neighborhood of Windy Brook Farms Subdivision as well as some traditions started back in 2003 when the area was being developed.
Each door had a Ghost posted indicating that the homes in the subdivision had been "BOOed" during the weeks preceeding.
This is a tradition started by the founding members of the subdivision where one member of the neighborhood leaves a container of Halloween related items ie. candy, flashlights, glow sticks, etc. on the doorstep of a neighbor, rings the bell and quickly hides so as not to be discovered, as the recepient opens the door to the surprise.
They in turn go within the next day to another neighbor with a container full and repeat the process. In order that no one family gets "BOOed" again they post a ghost in their front window or on the door. The kids get a kick out of carrying on this tradition under the cloak of darkness.
Another tradition developed in Windy Brook Farm Subdivision is that of the Annual Halloween Hay Ride. Homeowner, John Carmillia, hooks a wagon to his tractor and pulls the kids out of the neighborhood to the nearest condominium complex, Windsor Meadows, so they can terrorize Trick or Treat there.
This I am sure is just a taste of some of the traditions in Brentwood, NH for Halloween. If you know of others, please feel free to share them here.
