Zombie Awareness Month this May

Written by: 21 April 2010 5 Comments

Many films important to the evolution of the modern zombie are set in the month of May, from the original Night of the Living Dead, 1968, to the well received Dawn of The Dead remake of 2004. 

Also, because Spring (our Autumn so this doesn’t wash for New Zealand zombie culture)¬†naturally brings with it a sense of renewal and hopefulness, May is the perfect month to emphasize continued vigilance in the face of the coming zombie pandemic.

Supporters of Zombie Awareness Month wear a gray ribbon to signify the undead shadows that lurk behind our modern light of day.  From May 1 through May 31, concerned citizens take this small step to acknowledge the coming danger.

    Cut my hair short
    wearing tight clothing
    carrying a tomahawk at all times

    and of course sporting my grey ribbon.

    I’ve shaved off my attempt at a beard and drunk three litres of coca cola
