As a child in Newport RI,  I remember some of our elder Irish population occasionally referring to it as "Gap Night."  Perhaps someday I'll be enlightened about that quaint phrase.

  I'm curious to hear what the night before Halloween is
  called in your neck of the woods. I grew up in SE
  Pennsylvania and we called it "mischief night". My
  wife, from Bergen county, NJ, calls it "goosie night".
  I've also heard "hell night" and "cabbage night"
  (again, North Jersey).  Any others?
