Happy Belated Frankenstein Day!

So apparently yesterday (August 30th) was “Frankenstein Day” in honor of Mary Shelley’s birthday on August 30th, 1797. I was not aware of this, but seeing as Frankenstein’s Monster (or just plain Frankenstein as most of us call him) is one of the more popular monsters associated with Halloween, I thought you should all know there is such a thing as Frankenstein Day.

But that’s not all….Frankenstein Day is also celebrated on the last Friday in October and/or October 29th. So if you missed out, and really wanted to go crazy (watch a Frankenstein movie, make a Frankenstein cake, have a Frankenstein party, put on your favorite Frankenstein tee shirt, or do something else involving the big green lug), you still have another chance to celebrate.

Here’s a picture from the cover of Famous Monsters of Filmland (a great treasure for monster movie enthusiasts) featuring Frankenstein’s Monster. Cheers!
