Yep pigs are what I’m going to talk about today.
Killing a pig on October 17 -the feast day of St. Ignacius- and smearing the pigs blood on your body will keep vampires away from you.
Smearing pig lard on the corpse is believed to keep it from becoming a vampire.
Wallachian lore says vampires prefer to shape-shift into a pig.
This one is news to me. I love all of your bits of lore.
Thank you Vampire Maman ❤
I would think it would repel everything but the dog.
How long would the effect last, after washing with pig’s blood?
I’m not sure on their beliefs. I’d risk saying forever if no other contamination happened.
Ew – I’ll pass but thanks for sharing.
I certainly think you’d find out who your true friends were. I would delicately suggest that if people started avoiding you when you were in that condition it wouldn’t necessarily mean they were vampires…
