So much so, that the Today star decided to take a chance and prolong Halloween – even going ahead and trick-or-treating with her daughters before 31 October.

Others, however, were inspired by the idea, branding Hoda a fun mom.

In the caption, the TV star wrote: "We went trick or treating a week early. No one answered the first 2 doors… but on the 3rd door we god reeses. Never give up." "Why? You certainly brought unexpected joy to anyone who opened their door," one fan wrote in the comments, while another commented: "Did you forget Halloween is next Sunday?" A third added: "Love this! So fun!"
