Have you ever wished you could spend a night in the castle that inspired the story of Dracula?  Me neither.  Wait, you HAVE?!!  Well, have I got news for you!

A relative of Bram Stoker have given Airbnb permission to offer an overnight stay at the castle used by Vlad the Impaler back in the 15th century.  You remember Vlad, he liked to...impale his victims...

Ish!

Well, old Vlady's story inspired Bram Stoker to invent everyone's favorite creepy vampire, Dracula.  And the castle is a big deal in Transylvania!  Over 630,000 tourists visit it every year, but no one has stayed overnight since 1948, until this Halloween.

If this sounds like a dream come true, you should enter the contest!  Winners will be flown to Romania on October 31st, treated to a 'blood enriching meal' as detailed in Stoker's novel, and then given the opportunity to sleep in your very own red satin lined coffin!

Double ish!!

If you'd like to enter the contest, just write a brief essay (50-500 characters) answering the question 'What would you say to the Count if you came face to face with him at the castle?'

Good luck!

And leave your garlic breath mints at home.
