Airplane Trick-Or-Treater Twitter: Stephanie Kahan

Missing Halloween because you're stuck on a plane is no way to live. Thankfully, a 3-year-old named Molly has a dad who thought the same thing. Passenger Stephanie Kahan, who was on the same flight from Boston to San Francisco, noticed Molly's dad handing out candy to passengers on the plane, along with a note explaining why. It 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 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!" Father of the decade? Kahan tweeted both a pic of the note and one of Molly (doughnut costume and all) making her way down the aisle.

"OMG, my heart is exploding right now. Dad of the year just passed out candy to everyone on the flight so his 3-year-old could trick or treat," she wrote. Same. Um, also, did anyone notice that the words in the note are shaped and colored like a pumpkin? Dad really thought of everything. It's safe to say the adorable gesture has gone viral. Kahan also tweeted that Molly's dad, despite his newfound fame, wished to remain anonymous. We don't blame him. 

The whole neighborhood would probably rush to trick-or-treat at Molly's house next Halloween if they found out his identity. The tweet touched so many people that it currently has 98,000 RT's and 180,000 likes. "Thank you for sharing this. After having a rough day, seeing something like this makes everything feel just a little better," one person wrote in response to the tweet. "I dutifully hand my (imagined) dad of the year award to this gent. Well done," tweeted another.
