WOW! The older I get the more I learn about things! Hope you enjoy some facts about Mischief Night, Halloween Eve, All Hallow’s Eve.
Information below is from Wikipedia.org.
In the United States, Mischief Night is commonly held on October 30, the night before Halloween. The separation of Halloween tricks from treats seems to have only developed in certain areas, often appearing in one region but not at all nearby.
Here we go start off with the east coast, In New Jersey’s Atlantic, Bergen, Burlington, Camden, Cape May, Cumberland, Essex, Gloucester, Hudson, Mercer, Middlesex, Monmouth, Morris, Ocean, Passaic, Somerset,Sussex, Warren, and Union counties, as well as in Philadelphia; Delaware; Westchester County, New York; and Fairfield County, Connecticut, it is referred to as “Mischief Night”.
Towns in Northern New Jersey and parts of New York State, it is also known as “Goosey Night”. I like this name.
Starting in rural Niagara Falls, Ontario, during the 1950s and 1960s, Cabbage Night (French: Nuit de Chou) referred to the custom of raiding local gardens for leftover rotting cabbages and hurling them about to create mischief in the neighborhood. Today, the night is not celebrated in Ontario but is still celebrated on the east coast commonly known as “Cabbage Night” in parts of Vermont; Connecticut; Bergen County, New Jersey; Upstate New York; Northern Kentucky; Newport, Rhode Island; Western Massachusetts; and Boston, Massachusetts.
“Gate Night” is another name used in New Hampshire, West Kootenay, British Columbia, Tahsis, British Columbia, Winnipeg, Manitoba, Thunder Bay, (Ontario), Rockland County, New York, North Dakota (western part of the north-central USA) and South Dakota. (Midwestern region of USA).
Known as “Mat Night” in Quebec, Canada, and as “Devil’s Night” in many places throughout Canada, Michigan (eastern region of the north-central USA), and western Pennsylvania (East Coast).
