“Say boo and scary on”

"Say boo and scary on” is a Halloween saying that has been printed on many images. The saying borrows on the famous British World War II “Keep Calm and Carry On” poster.

“Say boo and scary on! Some last minute Halloween decorating ideas and tutorials. http://bit.ly/cD3YsS” was posted on Twitter by Jen Wallace on October 28, 2010. The saying probably originated with this image.


Wikipedia: Keep Calm and Carry On
Keep Calm and Carry On was a motivational poster produced by the British government in 1939 in preparation for the Second World War. The poster was intended to raise the morale of the British public, threatened with widely predicted mass air attacks on major cities. Although 2.45 million copies were printed, and although the Blitz did in fact take place, the poster was hardly ever publicly displayed and was little known until a copy was rediscovered in 2000 at Barter Books, a bookshop in Alnwick. It has since been re-issued by a number of private companies, and has been used as the decorative theme for a range of products.
