    To wind is to move in a curving or irregular path. To wind on is to do this while moving forward. It is figuratively applied to "night:" The night transpired, changing (in undefined ways) as it did so. A literal haze is a vapor that is hard to see clearly and hard to see through. The people who experienced this night enjoyed themselves in ways they didn't examine or think clearly about.
