Halloween Ghosting Prank

Halloween Ghosting Prank

You've been Ghosted - a novel approach to a non contact Halloween treat for children and adults alike, the idea explained here - a Karnival Costumes online party shop blog

Most people think of Halloween pranks as being associated with the 'trick' element of the traditional 'trick or treating', that is, unless you give me something nice, I'll do a trick on you. And frankly, with some of the things people performed oir did as tricks it's not surprising that pranking got itself a bad name and that triock or treating was, and to a lesser extent still is, seen as nothing more than a mild form of bribery.  A cleverly though out prank should be funny or witty and should make the recipient smile (at least inwardly) rather than reach for the phone to call the police!  Well Ghosting is probably one of the nicest Halloween pranks that we've come across and we'll definitely be doing it ourselves to see how far we can get it to spread where we live!
