Are you ready to scare the pants off your friends and family? Before you know it, the big Halloween holiday will be here.

Halloween holds a special place in the hearts of New Jerseyans. Not only do we love the spooks and tricks of the holiday, we also get to celebrate the night before. That is if you consider the night before Halloween a holiday.

Mischief Night is one of those days that are unique to New Jersey. Just as the name suggests, it's the night you head on out and cause mischief all around the neighborhood. That, or have a pre-Halloween party.

It's all in good fun and it certainly adds to the Halloween spirit. And speaking of which, now is a great time to start getting ready for when the big day arrives (or days if you are one of those who heads out the night before).
