Werewolves, Vampires, and Sunlight
Dear readers –
The following question was recently posed to me: Do werewolves like the sunlight?
Now, this question confused me, because as anyone that knows anything about werewolves knows – sunlight does not really matter to the werewolf. Sunlight matters to VAMPIRES. Werewolves operate just fine in daylight – in fact, in daylight, werewolves are usually in their human form, and react to sunlight like you or I would. They can however sometimes be in werewolf form in daylight – though in such cases they tend to stay clear of people. Werewolves do not fear the sunlight, nor do they hide from sunlight like vampires would. This I think is something that makes the werewolf a stronger creature than the vampire. Werewolves can be around 24 hours a day. Vampires on the other hand must hide out for 8 – 12 hours a day when the sun is up, hiding deep in dark caves, dark houses, or enclosed areas. Werewolves therefore would obviously have the upper hand in any kind of werewolf-vampire confrontation. But that is just a side note. Back to the answer to the question – no, sunlight does not matter to werewolves at all.
