Apparently in some areas of the US the night before Halloween goes by a special name. According to the American Dialect Survey
, in Michigan it's "Devil's night", along the Atlantic seaboard from Maryland to Massachusetts it's "trick night", in Vermont and western Mass it's "cabbage night", and to some in the NYC area it's "goosy night". Here in California, it isn't called anything at all. Whatever it's called where you live, be safe and try not to cause any permanent damage!
