Frankenstein Friday

Celebrated on the last Friday of October, Frankenstein Day celebrates the classic, gothic novel “Frankenstein” by Mary Shelley.

Though many people mistaken Frankenstein for the monster created by the young scientist and protagonist of the novel, Frankenstein is actually the name of the scientist, who never names the monster he creates.

Celebrate Frankenstein Day by reading the novel, watching the 1931 film that brought “Frankenstein” to life, or making a costume for Halloween – if your’re planning on going as the mad scientist Victor Frankenstein or his monstrous creation, that is.
