There was no shortage of celebrations for Halloween 2009, the Obamas’ first one in the White House. The north front of the White House was tinted orange with Halloween decorations, including three giant pumpkins—each weighing 1,000 pounds. Around 2,600 children from 11 area schools trick-or-treated at the White House, where they received White House M&Ms, a sweet dough cookie from the White House pastry shop, and some dried fruit. But nobody got in the spirit as much as some of the politicians. Although President Obama did not wear a costume, his wife Michelle donned a Catwoman outfit, former Press Secretary Robert Gibbs wore a Darth Vadar costume and U.N. ambassador Susan Rice dressed as Goofy.
