Happy Halloween 2016!


The Costen Insurance Team would like to wish you and your family a SPOOKTACULAR Halloween 2016!

Also know as “All Hallow’s Eve”, Halloween is celebrated annually on October 31st, the eve of All Saint’s Day. All Saint’s Day, November 1st, is historically dedicated to remembering the dead, including Saints and Martyrs. Halloween is said to be influenced by the Celtic festivals and festivals of the dead.

Over the years, the day has evolved into a family celebration where children (and often adults) dress up in costumes, go trick-or-treating, carve pumpkins into jack-o-lanterns, bob for apples, visit haunted houses, read scary stories, and watch horror movies!
