Celebrate the great Frankenstein
National Frankenstein Friday is an "unofficial" holiday that celebrates the famous fictional and horror character that was created in the 1800's. Frankenstein Friday is celebrated each year on the last Friday of October to pay tribute to the sensational and monstrous fictional story of all time.
Author Mary Shelley dreamed up Frankenstein at the age of 21, and her book was first published in 1818. Later the book was made into a movie called "Frankenstein" by Boris Karloff in 1931.
Mary Shelley wrote a book about a scientist named Victor Frankenstein who wanted to restore his younger brother's life who has drowned. He ends up creating a monster that sooner destroyed everything precious to him.
