God has given you one face, and you make yourself another.
Masks hide our flaws.
Masks lead us into temptation.
Masks free us to cross social boundaries, to break taboos.
Masks remind us that our naked faces can become masks.
Masks honor our gods.
Masks herald our demons.
Masks symbolize death.
Masks protect us.
Masks disguise us.
Masks frighten us.
Masks proclaim other realities.
Masks tell stories.
What lies beneath your mask?
The masks of Halloween are but a mere glimpse into the practice of masking, something humans have done for thousands of years.
