Who Here Knows What "Mischief Night" Is?

Fri Oct 31, 2003 12:54 pm

Ok, simple question...please only write the following:

1. Yes or No
2. Where your from

So far Ive talked to people from the following locals:

Denver area - no idea
Kansas City, KS area - no idea
Chicago area- no idea
Detroit area - its called by a different name
Northeastern Pennsylvania - knows
Philly area - knows
Piscataway, NJ - knows

I thought this was a nationwide thing, apparently its not...do you know what it is?

Mischief night, I think, is where on halloween you go out and you do a whole bunch of pranks untill you're tired as hell, and then you go home...

Never heard of Mischief Night. But if it is what I think it is, in Thunder Bay Ontario it was called Gate Night, and in Seattle and Southern Ontario it was called Devil's Night.
But that was when I ruled the world

Note: Until I moved to Mich. (from Calif.) I had never heard of it either.

Maybe it is a Northeast thing

You can add me to the list; I know what mischief night is. But I do not endorse it...

Last night, an estimated 40,000+ volunteers patroled the streets of Detroit (or what's left of it) to prevent an onslaught of arson fires that plagued the city some yrs. back. Now the local TV and radio stations, newspapers and the mayors office are trying to come up with a new name for this night in the City of Detroit.....

ANGELS NIGHT!! Strange but true...

I'm the one that actually asked Greg if he knew of any people who hadn't heard of it, as I thought it was nationwide. I'm from Philly (but go to college in Teaneck, NJ), and last night (the night before Halloween), I tried to get people in my dorm to go out with me for some "fun," and none of the people from New York had heard of it.

Have heard of it...but from friends who lived in NJ. Big thing in NJ, doesn't exist where I'm at (Columbus.)

Odd to add though, when I was being raised in Cleveland, we trick or treated on Halloween night. When I moved to Columbus, I found out that they don't do that, they specifically trick or treat on a different day called "Beggar's night" which is designed so that it doesn't fall on Halloween or on a weekend (I've heard of it being a safety issue.)

It may seem kind of lame, but there is a benefit. Each city in the Columbus metro area decides on the night Beggar's night will be, and they don't always choose the same day. So, sometimes, you can go trick or treating for two or even three days.  Smile/happy/getting dizzy
