Will all the bullshit happening...I forgot that it's gate night!

Mischief Night (also known as Devil's Night, Hell Night, Cabbage Night, Gate Night, Mizzy Night, Miggy Night, Goosing Night, and Egg Nyte) is an annual tradition in parts of the United Kingdom, Canada, and the United States when people (primarily teenagers and preteens) take a degree of license to play pranks and do mischief in their neighbourhoods. The most common date for Mischief Night in North America is October 30, the day before Halloween.[1][2] However, the traditional British Mischief Night is November 4, the night before Bonfire Night. Devil's Night can have a slightly different meaning and refer specifically to the serious vandalism and arson experienced in Detroit, Michigan, during the late 1980s.

So if you relocate a roadkill deer to someone's front door does that make it Venison Night? Just curious.

Josh, I think gate night is specifically a Rockland term. Everywhere I've been, noone outside of Rockland has heard of gate night! :lol:

at dinner the other night with my dad we were talking about the vandalism that is now cabbage night or whatever you want to call it, vs pranking.    

 

and he said "in my day the worst that we would do is take someone's front gate off and hang it in a tree!"

 

hmmmmmmm
