The children are out walking alone at night, and it gives them a sense of comfort that Boo is not there, and they have one less thing to worry about. Ironically, there's a mockingbird singing in Boo's tree, and Jem says that Boo can't be at home because it's there...... never giving a thought to the fact that Boo is a mockingbird...... and not knowing that he'll save them from Ewell's attack.
