This is a partnered post, samples were provided.
We loved watching Ghostbusters in the theater and when it arrived on digital 9/27 and on Blu-ray/DVD on 10/11 we had to share it with others.
The film opens with academic Erin (Wiig) finding her career in jeopardy after a ghost from her past appears – namely, a book she wrote on paranormal activity with childhood friend Abby (McCarthy). After confronting Abby in an attempt to get the book shelved, Erin finds herself reluctantly drawn into a haunted house with Abby and new friend Jillian (McKinnon), an eccentric inventor. Once confronted by an actual spirit, the threesome decided to band together and use their skills to procure hard scientific evidence of the paranormal. They set up an office and hire dumb-as-rocks receptionist Kevin (Chris Hemsworth), and are soon joined by Patty (Jones), who comes to their office after seeing a ghost in the subway during a shift at work. With Patty’s knowledge of NYC history, Jillian’s inventions, Erin’s scientific mind, and Abby’s passion, they set out on adventure to find ghosts – and possibly save the world while they’re at it.
We have partnered with Walmart to create a Ghostbusters themed “Boo It Forward” kit and secretly dropped it off at the kids’ friends house. However, the surprise was lost when they came knocking on our door and they excitedly asked if we got one too and my son yelled, “NO THAT WAS FROM US”
That’s my son, he’s not very good at keeping a secret but the kids still had fun.
The tradition of “Booing your Neighbor” has been around for several years now and it has really grown in popularity as a fun, safe, family-oriented activity. It’s also known as “Ghosting” or “Boo-gramming.” It has been a hit with mommy bloggers and their families. They would put together a home decorated bag of treats including a note with instructions on how to “boo” and a poem and deliver it anonymously to their neighbor, friend or relative. The recipient would then have 48 hours to do it to their next door neighbor or friend which creates a chain throughout the neighborhood.
So we had fun, we put candy, the movie and some muffins in our little pumpkin that we dropped off. Who would you share a treat with and what would you put in yours?
