Why Do Ghosts Wear Clothes?

Post by Riddick » 10-31-2019 04:52 PM


Why do spirits of the deceased need to wear anything? If ghosts are supposed to represent the spirit or eternal essence of a human being, why, then, do they need to appear in something so prosaic as clothing or the ubiquitous white sheet?

Have you ever heard of anyone saying they saw the ghost of their dearly departed grandma – naked? But ghosts didn't always wear clothes! There have been stories off and on through history about naked ghosts. Really.

Otherwise, ghosts have appeared in tales wearing sheets or shrouds, nightclothes, all black or all white clothing, or everyday garb they wore in life, depending on the era in which the story originated. It seems that ghosts follow fashion!
