Facts about Vampires

1. The most famous vampire of all time is Count Dracula, who quoted Deuteronomy 12:23: "The blood is the life."

2. The muppet vampire, Count von Count from Sesame Street, is based on actual vampire myth. One way to deter a vampire is by throwing seeds (mostly mustard seeds) outside a door or place a fishing net outside the window. Vampires are compelled to count the seeds or the holes in the net, delaying them until the sun comes up.

3. Prehistoric stone monuments called "dolmens" have been found over the graves of the dead in Northwest Europe. Anthropologists speculate they have been placed over the graves to keep the vampires from rising.

4. One of the most famous "true vampires" was Countess Elizabeth Bathory (1560-1614) was accused of biting the flesh of girls while torturing them and bathing in their blood to retain her youthful beauty.
