Halloween

WASHINGTON — Add this to the list of duties for President Barack Obama and his wife, Michelle: having enough candy to satisfy 2,000 trick-or-treaters banging on the White House door.

The White House said Friday the Obamas will give a Halloween welcome to hundreds of children from schools in Washington and the surrounding Maryland and Virginia suburbs. The trick-or-treaters will come to the front door on Saturday just as they would at any other house – except it will be the soaring North Portico of the White House.

Later, the president and first lady, as well as Vice President Joe Biden and his wife, Jill, are hosting a Halloween reception for military families and the children of White House and residence staff.
