This past year has for sure been the year of the vampires, no arguments there. Just a quick trip to the store and you can see how far the craze has spread - from the book section where half the books are about vampires, to the clothing section where you have shirts printed with my favorite words, “I Love Vampires,” to jewelry and decorations and …ahhhhh they’re everywhere! Vampires have most defiantly taken over our world.
Taking a look at this past year you find a treasure trove of vampire-y goodness, each feeding into our fang frenzy. Looking at each new vampire addition that has come along it’s hard to pick a favorite from 2009. There are so many! From the growing popularity of the Twilight novels and the massive success of the second movie, New Moon. To the deliciously sexy and addictive show True Blood, whose popularity surpassed everyone’s expectations. Then you have the hit show The Vampire Diaries, which like True Blood surprised everyone with its big ratings. I could go on and on, listing every kickass vampire book, movie and show that came out in 2009, but well, that would take forever. It goes without saying that this was a very VERY good year for vampires.
Looking back at 2009 I wonder what 2010 will hold for us vampire fanatics. Will we continue to see vampires every which way or will the madness die down soon and make way for a new big fad? Maybe it’ll be the year of the werewolves since that is often the pattern. Or even the year of the angels, I hear angels are supposedly big now. Or maybe it will be the year of the Abominable Snowman - picture it, a dramatic tale of star-crossed lovers, fighting for their love in the depths of the snowy mountains, AND THEN just when their picture perfect story falls into place and they are blissfully happy they are...they are… eaten by the Abominable Snowman! The End.
You never know.
