If you like monsters, you’re in luck! It’s Frankenstein Friday! Created by writer/producer Ron MacCloskey, the annual “holiday” takes place on the last Friday in October, just in time for Halloween.
Frankenstein was written in 1818 by author Mary Shelley when she was just 21 years old. And in case you didn’t think this famous monster was popular, think again. Did you know there are other holidays that celebrate Frankenstein? There is Frankenstein Monster Day, National Frankenstein Day and Frankenstein Day.
In honor of Frankenstein Friday, why not read, or re-read, this amazing classic novel? There are also plenty of Frankenstein flicks to watch too.
