Why do ghost's always wear white?
I mean, In most cultures and stories narrated around the world, It can be noticed that a ghost or a spirit will wear mostly white clothes. Sometimes its said that they are invisible or cant be seen to the naked eye. But most of the times people have said to have seen a "ghost" wearing a white cloth or a dress. Is it some kind of a tradition or something? Why only white? Why not some other color?
I don't think that's the norm, even though, as you say, it's kind of the stereotype. Apparitions are reported wearing all kinds of clothes, from military uniforms, to period clothing, to work outfits, to t-shirts and blue jeans. Pretty much anything a person could or did wear has been reported in ghost sightings.
There does seem to be an excess of "lady in white" apparitions reported, though. But there are also a lot of "man in black" figures, and shadow people.
Maybe when spirits are trying to manifest their colors are subdued and limited to whites, grays and blacks until they can achieve a more solid form. Who knows?
