Zombies are the a fan favorite, not only for Halloween costumes and World Zombie Day, but for fans of the gory zombie on AMC, “The Walking Dead”.
Last year, news stories in Florida highlighted violence that happened as a result of ‘zombies’ and things just went form there.
This year, fans will likely enjoy World Zombie Day 2013, which takes place on Oct. 12, 2013, by watching a zombie drama or reviewing their latest list of zombie apocalypse survival tips.
So what is this World Zombie Day? Each year, zombie fanatics take to the street for charities that collect funds for local food banks. Dressed up in their favorite zombie attire, they try and collect donations.
While not exactly a federal holiday, World Zombie Day has been celebrated since 2006 when a group of zombie aficionados took it upon themselves to host a zombie walk to benefit local food banks.
Ever since this first walk, the annual holiday has continued to draw fanatics across the country to local events including pub crawls and walks that sometimes help raise donations for local communities in need.
How can you survive the zombie apocalypse when it hits? Here a few tips:
- Get yourself some sturdy running shoes.
- Stockpile! Make sure you have decent food, things that will keep you strong enough to stay alert.
- Talk about what you want others to do to you if you ‘turn’. What do you want your family to do if this happens? This is very important!
- Find a group of friends you trust. Remember: Safety in numbers! The more people you have around you, the more cushion you will have as the zombies close in on you.
- Try not to say “it’s too quiet” because you’re just begging for the zombies to come crawling after you.
