Until I got the companion book, I didn't know it was a grave they were visiting; I thought it was a shrine to the Blessed Virgin. I thought the children were bringing flowers to ask for the BVM's protection from the vampires who lived in the castle on the hill. The children trust in this simple ritual. When we grow older, we have more critical minds. Like Jonathan Harker, we reject these old rituals as superstitious rubbish. In fact, we should have more childlike trust, because logic cannot save us from every peril.
