The kids can stay at the school (with their parents) after the curfew, but they can't be wandering the neighborhood by themselves. Apparently, Mischief Night was a big deal around here when my parents were in high school. As it evolved, there was just too much vandalism.<quoted text>
That's funny because a co-worker and I (both from NY) were talking the other day about how, in FL, they wait tll dark but in NY they did it right after school! Just the opposite! I think the 7 PM curfew stinks, though. I think 9 is good.
I don't remember my parents ever dressing up.
I'm just hoping that the weather is decent. Last year we had no power due to Hurricane Sandy and the year before there was a major snowstorm.
