“A thin gray mist of dry ice fog enveloped large, squat jack-o’-lanterns at one particular Waverley Street home in Palo Alto on Halloween night,” Victor Gonzales reports for The Mercury News.
“The sound of thunder rumbled from hidden speakers, eliciting a few gasps and eeps from children waiting in line to get candy at the home of Steve Jobs, where trick-or-treaters have been a welcome sight for years,” Gonzales reports. “‘It’s too scary!’ one child squealed at his mother.”
“About 50 children and their parents stood on the sidewalk in front of the home of the co-founder and former CEO of Apple, who died Oct. 5. They waited for the gate to open at 6:30 p.m. to the front yard of the Jobs’ family home. Many parents snapped photos of their children and the home,” Gonzales reports. “Children and teenagers were dressed as Vikings, Spiderman, priestesses and video game characters; a pair of boys were dressed as an iPad and as an iPod.”
Gonzales reports, “Palo Alto resident Bob Kocher brought his two daughters, ages 5 and 3, dressed as princesses. Kocher and his family, who just moved to the city in August, heard from neighbors about Jobs’ tradition of opening up their home on Halloween. ‘It’s a wonderful testament to Steve Jobs and his family. My daughters will be talking about this for the rest of the year,’ Kocher said.”
