As far as Mischief Night is mostly celebrated on October 30, it's tightly associated with Halloween. Trick-or-treating is a traditional activity for children.

Contemporary pranks include different tricks with toilet paper, powder-bombs, eggs, soap, fireworks, rotten fruits and pumpkins. Local grocery stores even refuse selling eggs to teenagers and pre-teens around the time of Halloween! Although the tricks during Mischief Night should be more or less harmless, sometimes children can damage homes and gardens.
