There are some awesome dads out there. Like this dad who transformed his son’s wheelchair into the Ghostbuster’s car so he could trick or treat, and this dad who turned his son’s doodles into realistic masterpieces. But now a dad flying from Boston to San Francisco is being hailed as “Dad of the Year” for his adorable Halloween-night idea!
A man was flying with his 3-year-old daughter, Molly, on Halloween night, from Boston’s Logan Airport to the San Francisco International Airport. The excitement of Halloween may have worn off years ago for others on the flight, but for little Molly, it was still a really big deal! Molly’s Dad hated to see his daughter bummed because she would be missing the annual tradition, so he handed out candies to passengers in order to take Molly trick-or-treating– dressed as a doughnut– down the aisles.
A passenger named Stephanie Kahan tweeted about it:

@stephaniekahan I bet not one person passed that candy back. Everyone on that plane turned into a kid on Halloween on that flight â¤ï¸
