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:
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).Advertisement

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...
