Inquiring minds want to know!
Among the High Elders of the vampire clans of the north known as Canada to many of us humans, they've established protocols based upon the naming of weeks. These protocols indicate when a gathering is indicated or an execution called for amongst the brethren. I've almost cracked the code but until then I can't point out exactly where they are meeting. I have discerned that Kromm ranks high in their organization. And yes I do keep the sun lamp on at night.

Thanks. I figured there was some sort of simple, every day, mundane explanation.

Which is why Canadian vampires wear their sunglasses at night.

Wait....

Nah, it was going to be a seque into a political joke, but I thought better of it. I'd rather not get myself into trouble.
