Mischief Night

Date When Celebrated : Always October 30 th

Mischief Night is today, errrr tonight! It is an evening when people traditionally participated in harmless (please) mischief. We 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: We 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.
