Frankenstein Friday is a national day observed the last Friday in October to recognize Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein

Frankenstein is one of the most well-known monsters in the world. Just the word Frankenstein brings up the picture of a tall, green-skinned, black-haired, forehead scarred, bolted neck monster, and all that is thanks to the author and famous homeschooler Mary Shelley!

    Some body asked for ideas on how to observe the day and suggested Frankenstein cookies. Turns out it was fun.

    I like your ideas for a Frankenstein day. Very suitable particularly for kids.

    Thanks for sharing.

        Yes, the ideas are very cool.

        They are quite interesting and have the potential to keep people engaged.

        Personally, as freelancer at Professional Writing Bay, I’d be much fascinated by ideas on building a Frankenstein tale.

        Thanks for sharing.
