Why Vampires Are (And Always Will Be) Popular
Besides being tall, dark, handsome, mysterious, and ultra sexy in or out of formal wear? I think it’s because they have the expanse of knowledge from the years they’ve lived. They have witnessed events we mere mortals can only dream about. These walkers of the night have seen humans at their best and worst and still crave their company beyond just being the entree of a four course meal. Vampires have power, wealth, immortality, the good looks of youth and its energy. All the things many crave. Vampires hunger for unconditional love. Or that elusive lost love, or unattainable love. They travel the world indulging in all that it, and life offers up. The undead are the bad boys, and girls, we all yearn to tame. Lately, vampires have taken a turn from undead, ghoulish evil keepers of the night. Today they are totally cool, walk in the day light, some come from the mythical land of Atlantis, sparkle, or are born like the rest of us. But they all still need to consume blood. These drinkers of human’s life liquid are misconstrued , ill-fated heroes fated for greatness and love. Why are Vampires popular? I believe it’s because they call to a deep physic need in us which we recognize, crave, don’t understand, but yearn to be part of.
