Do vampires sleep in the dark?
Modern day vampires aren't usually seen as "sleeping in the
dark", but the myth and conceptions of vampires change over who
writes and studies the ledgends. Vampires are often feeding in the
dark, and sleeping in their coffins by day. But what most people
think is that this fact is based around Bram Stoker's,
Dracula. This is wrong. There are elements of the vampire
ledgend that Stoker studied carefully to make his story as
believable as a biography, but what readers have carelessly
abandoned. It is said that Count Dracula has a fear of sunlight,
but this, as I said before, is not entirely true. In fact, many
times in Dracula the fabled count is seen in the daylight.
Many vampire movies/novels suggest that as soon as a vampire steps
out into the daylight, they instantly perish. What does
actually happn is that Dracula's powers are heavily restircted,
thus causing him the problem of feeding quickly and in cover. With
this, it would be that Dracula would have to feed at night, but, it
really depends on the story or movie you are reading/seeing at the
time. Every vampire I've known slept with a night-light. They are
really pretty sissies in some ways.
