Tonight Is Mischief Night

At least that is what is was called when I was growing up.

Houses would be splattered with eggs, tomatoes, smashed pumpkins, and a few possible tp'd trees.

The biggest mischief though was the soap on the car windows.

I've heard other names for this night before Halloween... I think some parts of New Jersey called it Cabbage Night? That doesn't even make sense.

What was it called where you are?

I say was because with all the fear and sheltering parents give to their kids these days, I can't imagine this stuff still happens as much as it use to.
