"This *particular* kind of mask is known as a 'false *face*' [not '*false*
face'], usually worn during quasi-religious celebrations like Mardi Gras
and Hallowe'en."
- Spencer Reed, PhD

However, he's discussing a plain, white, full-frontal mask. The ones that I
remember were of that basic design, but were painted with demonic,
monstrous, scare-the-shit-out-of-little-kids designs. Overkill, since the
plain white would have been sufficient unto the task.
All say, "How hard it is that we have to die!"---a strange complaint to
come from the mouths of people who have had to live.
