What would your three-year-old self want if you were trapped on a plane the one night of the year where it’s okay to gorge yourself silly with candy? If you’re like me, you probably can’t remember exactly what you’d want, but it would definitely involve not being on a plane. Instead it would involve trick-or-treating and eating all of the candy your heart could desire.
This Halloween, one little girl’s Halloween hopes were momentarily shattered and subsequently revived by one heck of a dad. Three-year-old Molly and her father — who wishes to remain anonymous — were flying across the country from Boston to San Francisco, and there seemed to be no hope for her Halloween plans. Little did Molly know, her dad was a Halloween Planning Rockstar on her behalf.
Molly’s dad took action (and his daughter’s happiness) into his own hands, and crafted out pumpkin-shaped notes to each passenger on the flight, explaining how bummed Molly was to miss out on a halloween classic, and supplied candy for them to hand her as she wandered down the trick-or-treat isle.
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 pic.twitter.com/vfsAcYNrhr

Stephanie Kahan, a fellow passenger, tweeted out this photo of the note, and one of Molly as she walked down the aisle dressed as the most precious donut your eyes ever did see.
Kahan wasn’t the only one whose heart turned to complete mush, either. That one simple tweet she sent out — while on a transcontinental flight — now has over 150,000 retweets and over 307,000 likes.
Once twitter got ahold of these dazzling and adorable pictures, a mass frenzy of happy tears for sweet Molly and cyber high fives to the dad of the year commenced:

With so much going on in our lives and around the world, it’s nice to take a step back, look around, and experience the extraordinary.
With that being said, we hope Miss Molly and her father got home safe and sound while enjoying the candy (and precious moments) together.
