Count Dracula a Halloween Vampire
About Halloween Vampires
The best-known Halloween vampire is Count Dracula. While we hear a lot about him during the Halloween season, trust me when I tell you he is out stalking the world all year long. So, you must be on the lookout for vampires whenever you are outside at night. Where is Buffy the Vampire Slayer when you need her?
By definition, a vampire is a person who will get “up close and personal”. He will give you more than a hickey. He lures his victims with his good looks and charm. Then, once they get close enough, a vampire bites into your neck and sucks your blood… all of it. They are not particular about blood type. Any blood type will do. A Vampire readily transforms from a bat to a human form and back. In human form, he is usually attractive with a strong, persuasive, even seductive personality. While most vampires are male, female vampires do exist.
You definitely do not want to know him. But, he really wants to know you!!! Once a person has become a victim of a vampire’s fatal bite, they return to life as a vampire.
Spotting a vampire is easy. All you need is a mirror. Vampires do not have a reflection, so they are invisible in a mirror. Getting the vampire in front of a mirror, however, is no easy task. They do not go willingly.
Did you Know? Vampires have “Eisoptrophobia” the fear of mirrors or seeing oneself in a mirror.

Thought for the day: If vampires cannot be seen in a mirror, why is Count Dracula’s hair so neatly combed?
How to Avoid Vampires
There are a few known defenses against vampires. They include:
- Garlic – This is the most common vampire repellent. Typically, worn around the neck, in cloves, or on a necklace. You can also rub garlic on your neck. A vampire will not go near a neck with garlic on or around it.
- Cross – If you touch a cross on a vampire, it will burn him. It must be a bonafide cross. If you are caught in a situation, a makeshift cross will not work. Carry a real bonafide, blessed cross with you at all times.
- Rosary – A rosary works just like a cross to keep vampires away. Use the cross on the rosary to repel him/her and hold it in front of you, to clear a path to safety.
- Daylight and any bright lights – A vampire only operates by night. He sleeps in his coffin with the lid closed tight during the day.
- Keep your neck covered. This is his favorite spot to sink his teeth into you.

How to Kill a Vampire
There are three ways to kill a vampire.
- Shoot a silver bullet through their heart. Certainly, you have some silver bullets lying around somewhere.
- Drive a stake into their heart, while they are sleeping in their coffin. Sure, you can drive the stake while he is awake . . . if you can catch him and hold him down.
- Trap them in the sunlight or bright lights. Caution, a flashlight is not strong enough.
Are you feeling ill? Porphyria is a rare disease that is also called Vampire Disease or Dracula Disease. It causes vampire-like symptoms. One symptom is an extreme sensitivity to sunlight and sometimes hairiness.
