In praise of... Mischief Night


Friday November 4, 2005
The Guardian

 

It might seem idle to throw sand into the great commercial gale of trick-or-treat not least because the best way to encourage children to throw eggs and blackmail householders out of Halloween sweets is by giving them pompous instructions not to. But there are some lessons to be learned, especially in the south of England , by a few deliberately mysterious references to Mischief Night, which is where the tradition of youthful misrule at this time of the year began.

Like many apparently American inventions, from the Mormon faith to Wrigley's chewing gum, this has its roots in Yorkshire , Lancashire and the north-east, where mischief will be practised in some places tonight, the evening before bonfire night. It has a subtler and more imaginative history than the mass purchase of plastic witch masks which marks trick-or-treating, and crucially, a better understanding of the principle of community.

Mischief Night sees phantom door-knocking, gate-swapping and other minor acts of sabotage, but usually done with an awareness of targets which are appropriate and those which are not. The elderly are less harassed by the indiscriminate pestering encouraged by the "treat" part of trick-or-treat - unless they have been notoriously crotchety to local children in the year past.

The point, and the reason to encourage a little interest today, is to allow young people excluded from adult decision-making to make a point, in the clever, unexpected ways of which they are specially capable.
