Halloween is the greatest holiday of the year — especially when you’re under the age of 15 and don’t know what the word ‘metabolism’ means. You get to dress up and run from house to house demanding candy, and then you get to eat as much as you want! It’s a child’s dream come true.
But one adorable 3-year-old named Molly was missing out on the first year when she was really old enough to enjoy the tradition, all because she was stuck on an evening flight with her dad from Boston’s Logan Airport to San Francisco International Airport.
But, according to Twitter user Stephanie Kahan, the “Dad of the year” wasn’t about to let his little girl miss out on the trick-or-treating fun — so he passed out candy to everyone on the flight to give her as she walked down the aisle.

The candy came with a note that read:
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!
BEST. DAD. EVER.
Has your heart exploded yet?
If not, let us remind you MOLLY WAS A DONUT FOR HALLOWEEN.
The photos have been retweeted nearly 60,000 times in less than 24 hours — and Twitter can’t handle all the cuteness.

Moral of the story: good is still out there. Even with presidential election anxiety looming over us, we have this reminder that there exist the kind of people who help their kids trick-or-treat on planes.
