We were Rocking Around the Clock!

Thank You to all who participated in the Arcadia’s Annual Fundraiser at Bill’s Nostalgic Garage on November 4, 2017 at 7 pm.

Our Board Chairman, Bill Bahorik is kind enough to open up his garage each year so that we can hold this fundraiser.  When we say garage, we don’t mean your typical garage.  This building is filled with tons of memorabilia.  From old time soda bottle machines from Coca Cola, Dr. Pepper and others, to a classic barber chair, to old fashioned gas pumps, to pinball machines, to classic diner booths and tables, to 50’s Juke Boxes, the list goes on and on and on.  You really just have to see it to believe it!

Thank you also to those who participated in our auction.  Lucky bidders walked away with a 55 inch smart TV, Yeti coolers, wine baskets, a martini basket, an I pad mini, an Echo Show, and a German Cuckoo Clock.  Our Arcadia Guild members were also on hand to sell 50/50 chances, with the winner receiving $150.00.

Once again, thanks to all!  These fundraisers are very important to the Arcadia Theater – they help us with operating costs and for booking the shows here at the theater.

Did you know the night before Halloween has a name?

Cabbage Night? Devil’s Eye? The evening of October 30th has long been a time for pranks across the U.S., but as this map prepared by the Cambridge Online Survey of World Englishes reveals, the name for these nighttime “festivities” varies considerably depending on local traditions and dialects.

Before the 20th century, Halloween mischief in the United States and Canada happened on Oct. 31 and consisted of tipping over outhouses, unhinging farmer’s gates, throwing eggs at houses and the like. By the 1920s and 30s, however, the celebrations had become more like a rowdy block party, and the acts of vandalism more serious, probably instigated by tensions over the Great Depression and the threat of war, historians say.

To stem the vandalism, concerned parents and town leaders tried to ply kids with candy, encouraging the forgotten tradition of trick-or-treating in costume in exchange for sweets, bumping the mischief element from the celebrations of Oct. 31 altogether. It was then that the troublemakers, neighborhood by neighborhood, adopted Oct. 30 as their day to pull pranks.

The custom of vandalism on Oct. 30, oddly, seems to have only developed sporadically, often appearing in some areas but not at all in others nearby.

Nowadays, Mischief Night is especially popular in pockets where Irish and Scottish immigration was common — in northeastern United States but not in the South and West, for example, and in the English-speaking communities of Canada but not the French.

These days, 74% of Americans surveyed have no name for this annual night of egged cars and TPed houses. But many in east Michigan still call it Devil’s Night, while parts of New Jersey,  New York, and Pennsylvania are still beholden to Mischief Night and Cabbage Night. Washington State is the largest linguistic refuge for Devil’s Eye.

Hopefully, everyone will be good ladies and gentlemen and not get into any mischief this evening.   No tricks tonight so you can get some treats tomorrow!

Happy Mischief Night and stay safe!
