Trick or Treat

White House Gets Festive for Halloween

President Obama and Michelle Obama hosted 2,000 kids at the White House Saturday for Halloween and passed out a mix of M&Ms and dried fruit to the hordes of trick-or-treaters. While the first lady dressed in a demure Catwoman costume—wearing furry cat ears and a leopard-print top—the president went without a costume and his spokesman Robert Gibbs dressed as Darth Vader. The event was the first White House Halloween for first kids Sasha and Malia, but the White House refused to tell reporters what the two wore.
