Devils Night?
 
Does your area have Devils Night?. Growing up in Detroit Devils night was a serious issue, however since I moved out to Seattle nobody here has ever heard of it.

No not really. Growing up I wasn't allowed out on Devils night. As I got older there was a curfew put in place. And as an adult I wouldn't of even considered doing anything like that.

I'm old enough to recall Devil's Night in Detroit making the news for many years. I believe we had a few copy cats who occasionally stirred up a little trouble growing up in the Bay Area of Northern California. But I've never personally seen this in any areas where I've lived myself.

It is still around in this area.

We don't have Devil's Night here in England. From what I have read on the link , it sent shivers up my spine. Very interesting to read though. I could understand why you were not allowed out when you were growing up.

In the North of England we had a similar night but it was called Mischievous Night but this was celebrated on the 4th November before Guy Fawkes Night.

The name alone is disturbing. Not something I would ever participate in.
