Mischief Night

What ever happened to Mischief Night? I remember as a kid, friends would always talk about their parents lettng them go out for this night-before-Halloween rampage of toilet-papering-the-neighborhood (or worse)… I never was allowed out, but always wondered exactly what went on during this bizarre holiday besides TP in trees.

These days, Mischief Night seems to have fallen by the wayside. As a homeowner, I guess I’m kind of happy about that. 🙂 Not a single thing happened last night, nor did it in my previous residence for the two years previous. Do any of our twenty-something readers have any fond memories of this night of legalized vandalizing? -ram

Isn't is called Devil's Night? From what I hear most years Detroit gets hit the worst, mostly in the form or arson.

In Pittsburgh, it was called "tic-tac"ing. We also used to do it on other nights besides devil's night, but Oct 30 was certainly the Super Bowl of tic-tac'ing.

We didn't do anything super destructive, toilet paper, eggs, unpopped popcorn against the aluminum siding, etc.

Robert -- yes, it's "Devil's Night" in some places... and Camden, NJ had a several-year streak there where it was rivaling Detroit for amount of arson and overdone "pranks."

Skidz -- I think throwing popped popcorn at houses is fun... but you have to throw really hard...

You are certainly right. Mischief night,or devils night,as they call it, is passe'. Kids today have wimped out and don't do mischief night any more. Most towns have some kind of thing that keeps kids off the street. I remember when I was a kid, we used to be wild on Mischief night. Even my webpage is struggling because of that. I predict that within 5 years, there will be no more mischief night. It's sad but true. Kids are not allowed to be kids anymore and have harmless fun. Unfortunately, that's the way it is....

Kid's don't TP anymore? Yeah, right. Every weekend someone I know gets rolled, I myself have rolled over 30 houses in two years and been TPed 9 times in the past year. Donw here in Orlando, FL. TP is still the favorite thing to do on a boring Saturday night- it's mostly junior and senior high scholeres who do it! It's so much fun!!!( as well as forking yards, oreo cookies cars, saran wrapping doors,soaping grass, padding guys cars- the list goes on and on.... :-)

In the UK, Mischief Night falls on 4th November, ie the night before Bonfire Night or Guy Fawkes, and is a feature of the northern and western parts of the country. Put simply, it's Trick or Treat done by Al-Quaida.

As practised in Yorkshire, it is almost entirely without ethics or restraint, ie whitewashing windows overnight, tying fireworks to cats or posting them through letterboxes, spreading dogshit on door handles and so on. The safety of the victim is rarely a consideration.

While I agree that T-Ping is a waste, the chances of a house getting set on fire just from throwing rolls of toilet paper at a house is very unlikely. But if you do find yourself T-Ping a house, when you're done, you say "there house!"

I absolutely, LOVE t'ping. Its such a rush! the first time i did it i was scared out of my mind. but when i actually threw my first roll, i was hooked. i was in 8th grade, and the seniors would pick me up and we would get someone. Maybe in some states and cities its illegal to tp, but where im from, the cops say its not illegal unless you destroy property. I personally have what i call a "signature" move. I tp houses with regular size rolls, then get 2 industrial size rolls, and rap up everying with one big roll. it looks like a maze when im done. then, i use a roll of caution tape (you can buy it at sears) and tie it around the house and trees in the front yard. At night when cars go by, they think its police tape because they usually cant read it quick enough. Its amusing. I used to use saran rap and rap up trees, but i stopped when one of my "partners in crime" closelined herself. what an idiot. i hear that shrink rap is good and that you should use it to rap cars. i'll have to try that yet. So for the record, tping in Ohio is still in season!

I've never heard of this. Reason tells me that the night following Halloween would be mischief night with all the kids in the neighborhood gassed up on pounds of free chocolate and sugar sweets. I don't recall mischief night in my Cleveland suburb childhood home. I think the kids in my neighborhood had moved on to the evening pleasures of staying home and getting stoned on pot. Then, you raided your own parents's candy jar to satisfy the munchies. That's as bad as we got.

Right on man! I just found this website and am so happy to be able to read about stuff like this.

Let's see...when I was a kid (1988-1994) I either did the following things or saw them around my neighbourhood on Devil's Night, as we called it.....eggs tossed at cars or people's houses, rocks thrown at windows, me and a group of buddies would wait in the bushes next to a bus stop for the bus to arrive, and then we'd bomb the sh*t out of it with about three dozen eggs and then we'd run away super fast, a friend and I placed empty beer bottles in the middle of a busy street with poor lighting and waited in the ditch at the side of the road for a car to drive by and all of a sudden we'd hear a big crash and the car screeched to a stop and the driver got out. One of the tires of his car popped and as we giggled our asses off we ran like hell out of there; I took cinder blocks near someone's house and placed them under a guy's car tires and when he got in his car to start it up and drive off I nearly died of an epileptic seizure of a laugh when the guys tires kept screeching and fighting their way against the blocks to move the car. Wasn't until the guy got of his car to see why the car wasn't moving that I got up and ran away laughing like crazy the whole time. I have also smashed pumpkins all over the road and on people's front porches, and some friends of mine would toss firecrackers at cars and in people's mailboxes. Very funny, even today as an adult in retrospect. We used to toilet paper trees and carved 666, swear words and Satan symbols into park benches, and saw spray painted crap all over our school almost every year, as well as a bicycle tossed on the roof. It was a blast when I was a kid. And of course, no halloween was complete without playing "nicky-nicky nine-doors" (you probably called it something else) where you'd ring someone's door bell and run away. If I could do that nowadays, I would still do it, only I'd do even worse sh*t because it's funny. The last time I did anything half destructive was take used condoms and wrap them around my neighbours' doorknobs in college at the dorm where I lived and egged some people's houses. It's getting too hard for young people to have good old-fashioned fun like that anymore with people being more vigilant nowadays over stuff like that, which is why I think halloween vandalism is becoming less & less of an occurrance. Anyhow, will see you all real soon and very thoroughly enjoyed reading about your exploits here in this website.

So my list of things I have done is:
Shaving cream on cars/driveways, same with soap. Dead animals on porch. TP in trees. Shaving cream balloons. Wet toilet paper thrown on the roof. Miracle Whip (you all know what that looks like) in condoms thrown on cars. Diapers filled with crap looking stuff. Saran rap, forks, and all that stuff has been used up too.

Mischief Night, my favorite night of the year. A night where streams of toilet paper fill the air. A night when yolk and egg white is the standard color of houses around the neighborhood. When automobile drivers are paranoid with thoughts that they might be just another victim of this dreadfull night. The only night where teenagers know there is a great risk of being caught. A night where men sit on their porches waiting for some punk to vandalise their property. A night when police are on constant lookout for hoodlems dressed head-to-toe in black attire. This above all nights is the greatest night of the year.

I moved like 2 years ago, and where I lived there were no other people my age soo it wouldn't have been much fun. But this year should be good because my neighborhood is almost 'split' into two parts. My side is considered more of the 'good side' and the other half is considered the 'bad side'.

When I was a kid, everyone went out on mischief night with tp, saran wrap, shaving cream, soap, and eggs. The targets were usually teachers houes or the houses of other kids. My own group of friends was more on the conservative side so we didn't do anything that could actually cause damage (no eggs, nothing on paint, no soap on windows (too hard to get off when dry)) but we did use up a lot of tp.

Kids can be very destructive, however, and some do take it too far. We came up with a solution for our families that allows them to still enjoy the sneaking around, and pulling harmless pranks, but also keeps them respectful of the property of others.

Over the last several years, it's become a fun thing that we, as adults, do along with the kids in our families. We go out on mischief night and hit each others houses (again, nothing that can do damage) all in the spirit of good fun. The teens love it, and sneaking around is fun even in your thirties. It's become a tradition we honor every year.

So mischief night is alive and well in our neighborhood, but it's a very harmless night that is more about sneakiness than mischief.

Also, in this area, if your house is "rolled" or "tp'd" on a night other than mischief night, it is considered an honor. Kids in this area will tp a coach's house after a big game, or tp a teacher's house in celebration of something. There is no malice behind it, so it's looked upon as a way of letting the kids have a harmless good time.

I remember mischief night. Growing up in Pennsylvania it was good clean pranks mostly. A few kids did other things but I remember it as a fun time. Soap on the windows would wash off, toilet papers on shrubs and trees would 'wear' off, eggs were a different story also expensive and the bag on fire well that was something else.

Yeah, where the hell do these people live? Its always been mischief night, since I was 13! AND its definately BOTH NIGHTS. Where the heck do they come up with these pussy names anyway (goosie??) Here's a trick 30 YO old farts prob forgot: You take the cheapest shaving cream cans you can buy--Barbasal--stab a sewing needle into the hole where the cream comes out, take a lighter and carefully melt the hole shut. Then pull out the needle and you're ready to fire up at least 10 feet or so!

Never burned any cats or set fire to anything for that matter. We really just wanted to reap havok in our neighborhood. It was the two nights where the punk kids could get back at that jerk on the corner that used to call your parents and the police to get you in trouble for riding your bike through his yard. A little soap on his car windows, and some shampoo bombs would never hurt anyone.

Mischeif Night means throwing a dozen 2000 Flushes into the fountain at the police station, along with a box of Cheer detergent! Man we had fun pelting each other with eggs and toilet paper. The pharmacy always ran out of shaving cream around this time, and mom would say "Now you better be back here before 10 and if the police bring you, you're toast mister!"

Man I miss being totally irresponsible. I live in Florida now and the kids don't do anything here anymore. I guess our cars are safe at least. If some kid soaps the windows on my Lincoln tomorrow, I guess I'll be pissed, but you know, inside I'll be laughing. How many poor people have I done that to? It's harmless. It's soap. Don't get mad--get even ;)

Mischief night is an English thing that you knicked off us and have b@stardised, much the same as anything else.

As has already been said, Mischief night is the 4th of November and you want tricks?

Stuff a dog turd with bangers (exploding fireworks), drop it on somebody's doorstep, light the bangers, knock on the door and run. If you time it right, the affect is priceless.

For something a little less dirty, tie a rope around someone's front door handle, throw the rope over the roof and tie the other end to the back door handle. Then knock on both doors and run. This only works on inward opening doors.

i remember when I was only 12 years old. Mischief night was the best night I ever had. We used to throw the empty kegs at trucks and what not. We also used to get sh** in a bag and light it on fire, and set it on peoples door steps. One guy caught us and beat the hell out of my friend Robert.

In Southern NY (right outside NYC) it was always called "Gate Night" but I think it's kind of died here too. I remember not being allowed out of the house that night, watching all the kids race around the neighborhood with egg cartons (bought a week before, since the grocery stores would refuse to sell them to kids so close to Gate Night) and TP and shaving cream. Tonight as I drove to get some cigs, I saw a few pieces of TP on the road, but that's about it. Glad no one is destroying property, but it is a little sad that the tradition died.

I live in England (Lincolnshire). As a kid (30 years ago!) we used to have fun on mischief night, which, was on the 4th November. Sounds quite tame compared with some of you lot.
But we used to walk down loads of streets, removing gates from their hinges and moving them on to the next door's gateway, so everybodies gate finished up on next their next door neighbour's gateposts. Apart from those who got wise & tied theirs to their own gate posts every mischief night. Sounds tame but at least we didn't cause harm to any living being which I think crosses the line from 'mischief' to 'cruelty' and is totally unnecessary. We can have fun without hurting others.
My own kids say "mischief night? what's that?"
Happy mischief night everybody.

NO OFFENCE BUT YOU AMERICANS HAV'NT GOT A FUCKING CLUE! HOW THE FUCK CAN YOU GET SO MUCH PLEASURE OUT OF THROWING TOILET PAPER IN A TREE? IT DOES LOOK QUITE GOOD WHEN DONE PROPERLY, BUT TO DO THAT TAKES TOO LONG. I DO LIKE SOME OF THE SUGGESTIONS, BUT MOST OF THEM ARE TOO LAME. MOST OF THE MISCHIEF WE GET UP TO OVER IN ALCOHOL INDUCED, WHICH IS GOOD BECAUSE YOU DONT GIVE A FUCK WHEN YOUR PISSED UP. FOR EXAMPLE, LAST NIGHT WE WENT OUT ON THE ALE AND EACH SCOOPED AROUND 10-12 PINTS OF LAGER AND A GOOD 15 SHOTS OF VARIOUS SPIRITS. AS YOU CAN IMAGINE THIS GOT US SCULL FUCKED. WE STAGGERED OUT OF A NIGHTCLUB AT ABOUT THREE THIS MORNING, AND I DECIDED TO STAND ON THE END OF THE BOARDWALK IN THE MARINA FOR A PISS. ONE OF MY MATES SAW HIS OPPERTUNITY AND SHOVED ME IN. HE THEN REALISED THAT WHEN I GOT OUT I WAS GOING TO MAKE SURE HE WENT IN AS WELL, SO HE THOUGHT FUCK IT AND JUMPED IN WITH ME. THE THIRD LAD IN OUR GROUP THOUGHT THE SAME AND CAME RUNNING ALONG THE BOARDWALK AND DIVED IN WITH US. THIS HAS RESULTED IN TWO LOST MOBILE PHONES, A LOST CAMERA, SOME COMPLETELY FUCKED UP CLOTHES AND THREE CASES OF SEVERE HYPOTHERMIA, BUT TO WATCH IT MUST HAVE BEEN FUCKING PRICELESS. WE HAD A CROWD OF PEOPLE APPLAUDING US. WE WERE ALL SO PISSED THAT WE CAN REMEMBER BEING IN THE WATER, BUT WE CANT REMEMBER EITHER SIDE OF IT. AS A RESULT I WOKE UP LAY BOLLOCK NAKED ON THE FLOOR OF SOMEONE ELSES HOUSE WITH MY CLOTHES IN HER WASHING MACHINE. WE ARE ALL IN OUR TWENTIES, BUT WE HAVE BEEN DOING ANYTHING WE CAN FOR A LAUGH SINCE ANY OF US CAN REMEMBER. I KNOW DRINKING IS NOWHERE AS BIG IN AMERICA AS IT IS IN BRITAIN, BUT THERE MUST BE SOME WAY YOU CAN GET HOLD OF SOME BOOZE. GET LAGER OR BEER, NOT SPIRITS. SPIRITS WILL GET YOU TOO PISSED TOO QUICKLY AND YOU WILL CRASH AND BURN BEFORE YOU CAN HAVE YOUR FUN. SOME OF THE SHIT YOU WILL FIND YOURSELF GETTING UP TO WOULD BE QUITE PAINFUL, BUT THE ALCOHOL WILL HAVE NUMBED YOU UP ENOUGH NOT TO NOTICE. I KNOW PAIN IS'NT REALLY A GOOD THING, BUT A LITTLE BIT HERE AND THERE DOES'NT REALLY MATTER AS LONG AS ITS A FUCKING GOOD LAUGH, AND SURELY THATS THE WHOLE POINT OF MISCHIEF IS'NT IT? IF ANYONE HAS ANY IDEAS FOR SOME PROPER MISCHIEF CAN THEY SHARE IT WITH US PLEASE. OH, BY THE WAY, IF I HAVE MADE ANY SPELLING OR PUNCTUATION MISTAKES, I DON'T GIVE A FUCK YOU COCKY LITTLE WANKERS. ALSO, ANY OF YOU TALKING ABOUT HURTING ANIMALS, YOU NEED A FUCKING BULLET YOU SICK BASTARDS. IF YOU TRIED THAT OVER HERE YOU WOULD GET A FUCKING GOOD KICKING.

One time we srink wraped a friends whole trailer house. It was hilarious! We waited till morning and recorded them trying to open th front door. Vandilism will never end in my small town inTX.

I was in my garage when I heard something hit the side of my house, and I'm like " what the fuck ? " . I saw this little junior high kid along with some of his little buddies chucking eggs at my house and those nearby . I ran out after the little retards and caught one . All his buddies ran off and it was just me and him . I slammed him to the ground and took one of the eggs he had and smashed it against his face yolk everywhere and the other I broke open and shoved it down his throat . I then said to him " Isn't that just yummy , now you can go lick it off the side of my house you little fuck head !"

Yeah my new house (5 months old) got egged last year in 2005, the night before Halloween, so called Mischief night, so I was pretty pissed off that the smashed eggs sat there all night and stunk up the porch, it got all crusty and moldy and it took me forever to clean up the damn mess, if I were ever to get a hold of those kids I will surely make them pay! This time I am going to be on the lookout on Mischief night to make sure this will not happen again!! If I have to stay up all night I will!! LOL I really do not want to clean up the stuff after working so hard and busting my butt and paying for my beautiful house only to be egged!!

I wrote a small blurb in here about 5 years ago saying mischief night is dead, and I still believe it is. Expect for a few(very few) kids who toilet paper the trees and throw a few eggs before the cops come and take the rest away from them, mischief night is still a disgrace. I rode my bike for the past ten years and have not gotten dirty yet. WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH YOU KIDS??? I might bring back “The other mischief night page” revamped for one last time to see if I can bring it back to life. But I don’t think there is a chance in hell. Come on, kids, prove me wrong!!! If you would like to see “The other mischief night page again, write to me at vinnyamatucci@hotmail.com and let me know. The more e-mails I get, the better.

Well, It’s 2 days to mischief night and it looks like it’s going to be another dud. I had a copy of my webpages hanging in front of a couple of the local high schools (Lyndhurst and Rutherford, in New Jersey) and no one was interested(except someone took the first page only of my webpages, which has 5 pages, and this makes no sense! Why would someone just take the first page?? It has no real info, just a description of what the website is about.). I keep hearing that mischief night is alive and well. Yeah, were the hell is that???? Let me know, will ya, because the kids around here sure as hell don’t know what they are doing!! It’s boring as hell here!! I’ll be doing my bike ride like I do every year, riding around on mischief night. I don’t expect to get hit or see anything that remotely resembles mischief night(It’s been like that now for well over 10 years).
If you want to contact me for a copy of my now defunct webpages, e-mail me at vinnyamatucci@hotmail.com and I will send you the full 5 pages, unedited if you like, or edited out for those of you with less balls then the others. I will let you guys know if anything happens on mischief night(but I doubt it!!).

Well I wrote a blog 2 days ago saying I was going out on my bike on mischief night. Well, it’s mischief night and I just got in at 9:22 pm. It’s official! Mischief night is now officially dead in Southern Bergen county in New Jersey!! Let me explain:
After fighting with my bike for three hours to try to get the damn thing in shape for my ride (Damn you, K-mart and your cheap-ass bikes), only to find that I need a cable for my back brake. When I went out, the damn tire hit the side of the frame, so there goes my ride. So I decide to take my vehicle around. I drove first through Lyndhurst, snaking through the various streets looking for some kind of action. NONE! Went to Rutherford, then through East Rutherford, Wood-Ridge and Hasbrouck Heights looking for action, but there was none to be found anywhere! Went back to Rutherford to the gay “Safe Night Out” because there used to be some kids with shaving cream and eggs in the parking lot of the bank. All I found was some friggin gay train ride around the lot. This is unbelievable! This is the first year ever that there was no one visible throwing eggs and having fun!! Wow! The many years of police presence and having them swoop down year after year has had a demoralizing efffect on the kids, so much so that they have just given up. Now all they bring out is TP,shaving cream and silly string, and some may have a few eggs. So that’s it. As Mick said to Rocky “It’s over Rock”, and I believe it is. A tradition that is well over 50 years (I actually heard something about people doing some mischief 75 years ago, but you don’t know for sure)has died a gruesome death at the hands of the kids who one treasured the day. So sad! So very, very sad!! There might be a resurgence next year because mischief night comes on a Friday night, but don’t count on it!!
