Dad Gets Plane Full Of People To Help His 3-Year-Old Trick-Or-Treat

A man is being hailed as “father of the year” for getting airplane passengers to give his daughter a special Halloween to make up for missing trick-or-treating.

On Halloween night, a toddler was stuck on an airplane with her dad instead of trick-or-treating with neighborhood friends. However, her thoughtful father made sure that the flight was filled with Halloween spirit.

Upon boarding a Virgin America flight from Boston to San Francisco, a father approached several passengers and handed them little treats with a note attached that read:

“My three-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!”

One passenger named Stephanie Kahan tweeted about the dad’s sweet plan. Little Molly — who was dressed as a donut — walked down the plane’s aisle and said, “Trick-or-treat” as she approached each passenger to collect her candy.

"Everyone seemed to be really touched and excited to participate," Kahan recounted. "It was a real heartwarming moment."

The father asked to remain anonymous, but Kahan shared some photos from the night that quickly went viral, with many people crowning Molly’s dad as “father of the year.”

Molly was certainly one lucky donut.
