Did you know that in the land of Hellas there are more than 48 villages with the name fairey village or sth similar?That there are more than 30 words in the Hellenic language for the creature called vampire.That many islands are considered home of vampires,and many are known to have places named  like the Devil harbour,the Devil islands.

Words for the vampire:

The folklore legend of vampire is (was?) popular throughout Greece; I believe it's a remnant of the last pagan days of Greece.

But half of these words aren't totally different from each other. They are obviously just different pronounciations in the various areas of Hellas.

Something else.

Isn't vourdoulas a whip '' ?
and 'katramhs' = tar ""
we can find '' known today as ""
To the gods we mortals are all ignorant.Those old traditions from our ancestors, the ones we've had as long as time itself, no argument will ever overthrow, in spite of subtleties sharp minds invent.
