When I was - a lot - younger we had Mischief Night before Bonfire Night, (Guy Fawkes Night), November 5th, a combination of both occasions. We used to take people's gates off their hinges and play 'Knock-a-door-run', making nuisances of ourselves.
Interesting. We used to stuff out clothes up and put a mask on as a head, and throw him into a ditch so passerby might get a fright.
