Keeping with our Halloween theme this week – let’s learn about and perhaps celebrate today’s holiday, “Frankenstein Friday!” Frankenstein Friday, which is on the last Friday in October, falling on October 28 this year, was created to celebrate Mary Shelley and her famous novel “Frankenstein.”
National Today recommends a few fun, silly ways to celebrate this holiday together –
1. Read the book that spawned it all: Perhaps read the original version of “Frankenstein” by Mary Shelley, then read the newer editions. If movies are more your style, watch one of the various movie adaptations starting as far back as 1931.
2. Get to know Mary Shelley: Check out her biography and read her other works like “The Last Man” and “Falkner”. You can take the cinematic route again by watching the 2018 film “Mary Shelley”.
3. Host a Frankenstein party (our favorite): Dress up like the characters from the book, play trivia games, or even conduct little science experiments. At at your amazing party, make sure to serve some fun Boo-Shaw Bakery cookies!!
