I remember when I was a small child (single digits) trick-or-treating was done on the night BEFORE Halloween, and it was called "Beggar's Night." I'm not sure if that was nationwide or restricted to a particular region, and I can't remember when it stopped being that way and everyone started trick-or-treating on Halloween itself. Can anyone validate this, or am I getting so old that I am making things up?

Bob: I'd never heard of "Beggars' Night," but there's a Wikipedia entry: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beggars_Night
It's celebrated Oct. 30, and seems to be limited to a few regions -- Ohio and upstate New York, mostly.
