Celebrate, Hide Their Shame or Commit Crime

Some use me to celebrate,
Others use me to hide their shame,
Others use me to commit crime.

What am I?

Alcohol. People have a drink to celebrate, but also drink to hide their shame. Lastly, drunk driving is a crime.

A mask is also a valid answer. They can be used to celebrate Halloween or at dress-up parties, a mask can hide your shame and masks are used by thieves.

Update: This one has more valid answers than I thought. Money, drugs and night also work.

Wouldn’t the more appropriate answer be ‘Night’?
People Celebrate a lot at night,
They use Night to Hide their shame (affairs… etc.)
and a lot of Crimes take place at night. (over the years people care less and less about the time of day, but people still use the darkness of night to hide their “Deeds”)
