BOSTON–Sometimes, you can have your cake and eat it too.

One father felt bad that his young daughter had to be on a plane for Halloween, so he found a way to make it super special for the little girl.

The dad passed out candy to all the passengers on a flight from Boston’s Logan Airport to San Francisco International Airport Monday evening. He included a note to explain the gesture.

Then, he brought his 3-year-old daughter Molly, who was dressed as a donut, down the aisle to “trick or treat.”

Here’s what the note said:

Happy Halloween!

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!

A passenger, Stephanie, tweeted out the pics of the awesome gesture so that we can all know what a “dad of the year” looks like.
