Life goes on. Halloween is a tradition at Steve Jobs’ Palo Alto home and this year was no different. Decorated with jack-lanterns, lights and swathed in dry ice fog and scary sounds, a gaggle of parents and kids queued Monday outside the house ahead of Trick or Treat’s 6:30pm start.
And, so begins a new tradition. Mercury News reports that 50 people, large and small alike, were waiting for Trick or Treating to start outside the home of recently passed Apple CEO Steve Jobs. Whereas this might sound a bit ghoulish, the Jobs’ family is well known for putting on a big, beautiful Halloween display.
“It’s too scary!” one child squealed at his mother.
Kids came dressed as Apple products (see image slug in the lead), Vikings, Spiderman, priestesses and, of course, video game characters. Their parents came armed with cameras.
“It’s a wonderful testament to Steve Jobs and his family. My daughters will be talking about this for the rest of the year,” said one dad.
Thereupon, three women at a table in front of the Jobs’ house were handing out bags filled with orange candy slices, Toblerones and sour drops.
Now, who will be surprised if 500 people are queued in front of the Jobs’ home next year for Halloween…
What’s your take?
