Why don’t Mormons wear masks for Halloween?

I’m a little late in posting this question, but better late than never.

A month or two ago in our BYC (Bishopric Youth Committee) meeting, we were planning the youth and ward Halloween parties. One of the youth spoke up and reminded others not to wear masks, and another youth asked why. One of the adult leaders spoke up and said that many of the people in the mob that killed Joseph Smith wore masks, so the Church encourages people to not wear masks. Is that true? I thought it was just because masks are creepy and we like to know who we are talking to.
