Devil’s Night

By Katie Ralbusky, Online Editor

It is famously called Devil’s Night, Mischief Night, Damage Night, and Miggy Night, but Oct. 30 has been celebrated just as fervently as Halloween.

According to the article Devil’s Night: The History of Pre-Halloween Pranks, “Mischief Night, as it is most commonly known in the United States, has been around in its present form for at least 50 years, when it became a day for playing “tricks” while Halloween itself was reserved for the little one to gather “treats.” The practice goes back hundreds of years before that, though, to a time when Halloween and misbehavior were inextricably linked.”
