A Community Does Halloween a Second Time After an Autistic Girl Has a Bad Experience Trick-or-Treating

There’s a 17-year-old girl named Trina Burnett in Sandy, Utah, and she’s autistic.

She tried to go trick-or-treating with her siblings on Tuesday, but according to her dad, several people yelled at her for being too old and slammed the door on her.

And yes, while 17 would NORMALLY be too old to trick-or-treat, obviously this was a different situation.  So Trina wound up cutting her night short and ran home crying.

One of Trina’s sisters posted about what happened on Facebook, and the community decided to try to make things right.

A bunch of people kept their Halloween decorations up, and on Saturday night, they held Halloween AGAIN so Trina could have a better experience trick-or-treating.

And this time, it went WAY better for her.  She said, quote, “It feels very heartwarming to see that people care so much.”
