    Mischief Night (Cabbage Night)

    Mischief Night (Cabbage Night)
    When : Always October 30th
    Mischief Night is today, errrr tonight! It is an evening when people traditionally participated in harmless (please) mischief. I stress harmless or innocent mischief. Other forms of mischief can lead to big trouble. Even seemingly harmless mischief can be the source of problems.
    This night is discouraged by law enforcement organizations.
    The mischief is sometimes less than funny, and can even lead to vandalism or destructive.
    Important: I neither encourage, nor endorse participation in this day. Why risk getting in trouble??
    Historically, some common forms of mischief on this has included:
    Soaping windows
    Egging houses and cars
    Tossing a few rotten tomatoes
    Toilet papering house trees, etc.
    Knocking on doors, then running away
    Have a happy, safe, and harmless Mischief Night (Cabbage Night).

    It used to be a fun night when I was younger.

    I don't get the egging thing. I've had paint damage to two cars because of egging. I'm all for harmless fun, not egging property.

    I used to go soaping windows every cabbage night. I'd wear all black and mom would ask where I was going; like she didn't know...

    The best night of the year to indulge a guilty pleasure and watch The Crow.

    I haven't thought about this night in years.

    Does this still go on? Kind of thought this went the way wiffle ball in the street and kick the can.
