This year’s Halloween was one of the most unusual ones we’ve had in decades. We’re in the middle of a global pandemic, and it’s particularly uncontrolled in the U.S., so it doesn’t come as a surprise that many families skipped the traditional trick-or-treating, and turned to alternative ways to have fun and celebrate the holiday.
The Thomas family from Atlanta, Georgia, had a particularly unusual Halloween celebration, and Courtney Thomas shared a post on Facebook in which she said that they had to put out a sign on Halloween in which they explained that their family had a child with cancer, so they wouldn’t be giving out candy this year. As she explains, their neighborhood traditionally gets many trick-or-treaters, so she didn’t want kids to come at their door and leave disappointed.
“Cool costume! Sorry, no candy, child with cancer. See you next year! Have fun!”
However, what the mom found beneath the sign left her in tears, and you can check out her heartwarming post for yourself below.
Although many things challenge our faith in humanity every day, it’s stories like this one that manage to restore it – at least for a day.
