31 Days of Spook – Day 25

25 Oct

Hello spooky friends.  Today, October 25, 2013, is Frankenstein Friday – booyah!  Frankenstein Friday is always the last Friday in October.  It’s a day to celebrate the birth of Frankenstein and its creator.

Frankenstein is one of the best known characters from horror movies and dates back to the 1800’s.  Frankenstein was born and created in 1818 by Mary Wollenstonecraft Shelley at the age of 21 when she wrote the ever famous Frankenstein.  Can you imagine being so young and creating a character that would last forever?!

Do you know where the origin of this day came from?  Today was created by Ron MacCloskey from Westfield, New Jersey in 1997. He picked a Friday to celebrate so more people could participate.

Have you heard of Westfield, New Jersey before?  Does that sound familiar?  Well, Westfield, New Jersey is also the hometown of Charles Addams, the New York Times magazine cartoonist who created The Addams Family.  Small world huh?

    My Mom loved the Frankenstein movie Mel Brooks did – it makes her giggle and when she giggles I giggle which is good because otherwise I’d be SCARED of that Frankenstein guy!

      I never knew the last day was Frankenstein Friday either until I did some research. Now I will always celebrate. And yes she was so young and so imaginative. XOXO – Bacon
