An article by Hilary Parker discusses the ideas behind Halloween costumes. Dr. Katherine Ramsland, assistant professor of forensic psychology and a prolific author, is quoted, saying that Halloween can be a way for people to approach death in a playful, cathartic way. "We should have Halloween for a whole month," said Ramsland. "I think Halloween is very good for people because I do believe our culture ought to become more acquainted with death and not be so intimidated by it."
