You can book a tour of a grave yard. Really! They will discuss vampirism and ghost with you -just more of the season. I’ve always liked visiting cemeteries and looking at gravestones. The older, the better. You can muse about the times and events of people in the past; at least, I do.

There has been a big uptick in the popular shows about vampires and myths of the supernatural. As long as there is interest in the other world of the spiritual there have been fascinations with the stories. They just don’t often get it right. All of a sudden I hear a chorus of “What makes you so sure? How do you know they don’t get it right?” I could answer… the Bible, silly, but then I would make the unChristians mad.

There are a few obvious things to point out, however. Like the predominant use of guns and such to “kill” what is essentially portrayed as “spirit”. Details like that. But being in a rather mellow mood at the moment, I won’t go into the arguments. One thing I do take note of is how entertaining some of this is. Buffy the Vampire Slayer was one of the most entertaining, albeit theologically ridiculous, shows out there. And today’s Moonlight is fairly good TV which is remaking some of the vampire myth. and by the way, in case you don’t know…. there are people who really believe and call themselves vampires.
