But I understand where they're coming from..sort of. If Obama told us something crazy (but that we previously believed in anyways), but that we could save ourselves by doing something as easy as buying garlic, then I'd do it. Better be safe than sorry lol.
How is garlic going to save them from the vampire? Given the fact that the village is in Europe, the original mythology of the vampire is far different than the hollywood vampire, which I believe started the whole garlic fiasco. Even James Rolfe doesn't get where the whole garlic thing came to be.
I'm a bit astounded that this has happened in Serbia, I thought something like this might have happened in Transylvania, Romania, with someone like Vlad the Impaler instead. I dunno what to say, except the Garlic producers will be rubbing their hands at this.

Thinking about what he said, the people in Serbia shouldn't be afraid of the vampire, they should feel sorry for it.Pretty much anything can kill it, whether it be sunlight, letting it come into your house without inviting it in, or pretty much anything that can be found inside a church.
Well garlic was a part of the original Bram Stoker novel so at the very least, it originated before the times of Hollywood. Pretty sure Dracula doesn't die to sunlight as he appeared in daytime quite a bit too in the novel (but neither will he sparkle either, so thank God for that!)
It's a pretty good from a marketing standpoint, Vampires as a genre/thing is in, (thank you Twilight) so this is their way to capitalize and bring in some capital. You could probably learn a good thing or two if you actually did visit this part of the world for its culture/history, so why not. Whatever floats your boat.
