Everything You Need to Know About Vampires
Some of you may make fun of the facts we are going to mention but bear in mind dear readers that these findings are based on personal efforts, studies and research. Maybe they passed by your side or even talked to you, or maybe they stood by your bed once and whispered in your ears while you are asleep…who knows! Sure there is. Vampires existed a very long time ago; there are proofs to their existence during the Babylon, the Indian and the Sumer civilization in addition to the Ancient Egypt. All these civilizations talked about creatures that hunted human to drink their blood. Besides these stories, scientists discover vampire tombs every once in a while.
Everyone knows that vampires suck … your blood!!!! Seriously though, do you know the history behind modern vampire lore? These creatures of the night have been lurking around for a very long time, although the princes and princesses of darkness have taken on different guises and mythologies throughout the ages.

Vampires of Europe
All rights reserved. This year-old skeleton from Sozopol, Bulgaria , was found with its teeth removed and stabbed through the chest with an iron rod. Scholars suspect that townspeople did this to ward off vampires—a very real fear in Europe for hundreds of years. The traits of modern-day vampires are pretty well established. They can be warded off with garlic, or killed with a stake through the heart. Some, like Dracula, are aristocrats who live in castles. Scholars suspect that the modern conception of these Halloween monsters evolved from various traditional beliefs that were held throughout Europe.
