Stephanie Kahan was an hour into her flight from Boston to San Francisco when she saw a man passing out treats to people sitting in the aisle seats of the plane.
The man turned out to be a father to a little girl who was upset she was going to miss Halloween because she was in the air.
The girl's father, who did not wish to be named, handed out treats, as well as a note telling fellow passengers to hand them to his daughter when she walked down the aisle saying "trick or treat".
Stephanie tweeted about the wonderfully cute trick-or-treater (who was dressed up as a donut) and picked up tens of thousands of retweets as people fell in love with the idea.
"I asked him if he wanted to be included in the story by name and he said 'no, it was really not a big deal'," said Stephanie.
