I rememeber soem kids got really scared of it. Anything for a bit o’ sadism…. This is not a tradition in NYC (as far as I know) but I googled it and found out it happens all over the USA, and was statred by children in the 1980’s. hmmmm… Happened in R.I. in the 60s. I know. My Dad told me to get used to it, it happened to him in the 20s.
