Mischief Night is generally recognized as a New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Michigan phenomenon.
Mischief Night tends to include popular tricks such as toilet papering yards and buildings, powder-bombing and egging cars, people, and homes, using soap to write on windows, ‘forking’ yards, setting off fireworks and smashing pumpkins and jack-o'-lanterns.
