The "Bogie" man

I am not sure when American's stopped saying Bogie and Bogie-man and started Boogeyman, but from 1912-1925 we at least were still using the English "Bogie" vernacular as is apparent in Dennison's Bogie Book. A lovely Halloween tradition before and between the World Wars.
It seems Bogie, too, was once termed differently. It was from the 16th century Scottish word "Bogle" which meant Goblin, Phantom, or Scarecrow.
Anyway you slice you, the Bogie/boogie man will be about this month and hopefully invited to your Hallow'en festivities.
