The Year of the Vampire

Hello dear readers, today is the first day of the New Year which means just like everyone else we’ll be taking a look at the past year. Exciting!

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.

Moonlight (aka Amanda) loves to write about, read about and learn about everything pertaining to vampires. You will most likely find her huddled over a book of vampire folklore with coffee in hand. Touch her coffee and she may bite you (and not in the fun way).

First, the Abominable Snowman thing is hilarious!!!! Second, now that the world has grasp vampire popularity, even if the world lets go of vampires for awhile (circa, after Breaking Dawn is a movie) they will find there way back (*cough* *cough* my book im writing). Vampires are addictive so the world will almost always find a way to get them popular again. Even on accident. I know I will never get tired of them. And third, you forgot to ask: Will get more hits or less?

I’m not really sure how to feel about the ‘Year of the Vampire’. Do I feel ecstatic that the world has cottoned on to the vampire world as I have (and many of you have) been for many years now, or do I feel miffed that the world has started to jump on a band wagon that they will be just as glad to jump off of when the next one comes along? What do other people feel?

I think I love you, Moonlight. The Abominable Snowman idea is totally workable, and would probably kick ass :’)
I hope the fang madness doesn’t die down, it’s just getting fun now the Twiglet noobies are moving on to things like True Blood. Even Being Human is getting more attention (:

Twilight was the pebble in the pool of Vampires, and the ripples are still continuing…
