frankenstein 1300U.S. (10/25/13) – Did you know the last Friday in the month of October is considered “Frankenstein Friday?”

It’s a yearly event just before Halloween that celebrates Frankenstein “birth” and his creator just.

“Born” on Jan. 14, 1818, when author Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley wrote the novel, Frankenstein is one of all-time favorite horror characters.

In the novel, a scientist named Victor Frankenstein discovers how to reanimate dead bodies. He then creates a monster that chases him to the ends of the earth and eventually destroys everything he held dear. The character and the novel has remained a classic for more than 100 years.

In 1997, writer and producer Ron MacCloskey was credited for the holiday. MacCloskey chose to have the holiday on a Friday because more people can “party” on a Friday night that any other night during the week.

There are other days during the year that also celebrate and honor the popular monster. In addition to Frankenstein Friday, there is Frankenstein Monster Day, which is Oct. 30; National Frankenstein Day is Oct. 29; and, Frankenstein Day is Aug. 30.

Most people celebrate Frankenstein Friday by watching the movie or reading the book.
