'Dad of the year' takes daughter trick-or-treating on cross-country flight

BOSTON — It was a red eye flight that had one young girl upset, but her dad had a perfect solution.

Stephanie Kahan tweeted that she was sitting on her flight from Boston to San Francisco when a man passed out candy to everyone so his 3-year-old daughter could trick-or-treat.

“OMG, my heart is exploding right now,” she said.

A note with the candy explained that the girl, Molly, was bummed she couldn’t go around collecting candy.

“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,” the note said.

The move went viral on social media with comments from across the country, including FOX25 Sports Director Tom Leyden who said “Dad of the Year. We're all playing for second place.”
