On a long flight from Boston to San Francisco on Halloween night, a woman named Stephanie Kahan overheard a little girl tell her dad "how she was excited to trick or treat."
Logically, Kahan thought the girl was confused. "I felt sad because I was thinking about how when we landed in San Francisco, it would be way too late to trick or treat," she told BuzzFeed News.
But anything's possible for a determined dad with the fastened seatbelt sign turned off.
When they got on the plane, the dad passed around candy accompanied by the following note:
My 3-year-old daughter, Molly, was bummed that she wouldn't be able to go trick-or-treating this year due to this flight.... so I decided to bring trick-or-treating to her. If you are willing, when my little donut comes down the aisle, please drop this in her basket. You'll be making her Halloween! If you're unwilling, no worries, just pass the treat back to me. Thanks so much!
And his daughter trick-or-treated from row to row.
(This also allows the parent to control exactly what candy his daughter gets—it's genius.)
"The father said that he had this planned for a while with her as a special treat," said Kahan. "The few rows around me were really into it and thought it was absolutely adorable." Duh.
Little Molly, dressed as a donut, may have missed Halloween in San Fran, but she had the internet's most viral sky-o-ween of all time.
