Frankenstein Friday

Frankenstein Friday October Daily Calendar Holiday

Date When Celebrated : last Friday in October

Frankenstein Friday celebrates the birth of Frankenstein and its creator. Frankenstein is one of the best known horror characters, dating back to the 1800's. We can't imagine the Halloween season without the presence of Frankenstein, lurking somewhere in the darkness.

Frankenstein was born in 1818 when Mary Wollenstonecraft Shelley, at the age of 21, wrote the story "Frankenstein".

Frankenstein's Mother: Mary Wollenstone Shelley

Frankenstein's Father: Boris Karloff

To celebrate this day, we suggest you read the novel, or see a Frankenstein movie.

 Ron MacCloskey, the creator of this special day, by awarding "The Franky" to someone who has made a significant contribution to the promotion of Frankenstein. Maybe next year, you will receive the coveted "Franky" award.

Origin of Frankenstein Day:

This special day was created by Ron MacCloskey from Westfield, New Jersey in 1997.  

Note: Ron's hometown of Westfield, NJ. is also the hometown of Charles Addams, the New York Times magazine cartoonist who created The Addams Family. So, Ron's interest in Frankenstein comes as no surprise.

Ron picked Friday to celebrate this day for the "FR" connection, and because more people can party on Friday than on other night of the week.
