"I'm taking my son trick-or-treating. He grew up overseas, so it's exciting for us to be able to go. I live in San Francisco, which does pose a problem, because you can't go trick-or-treating in apartments."
David Savelson, San Francisco
"It's also my birthday, so I'll probably be dressed up at a party and reminding everyone that it's my birthday."
