Frankenstein Friday for 2017


Earlier today I posted an entry re a Praying Mantis, who visited my urban garden, Now, before this day comes to a close and in all fairness to the figurine (pictured above) who likes to dress up as Frankenstein during the Halloween season, I need to remind readers that today is the last Friday for the month of October, which means it's Frankenstein Friday. It's a holiday that I referenced in yesterday's blog post.

Frankenstein Friday celebrates the birth of Frankenstein and it is a holiday that I've written about in prior posts here on Blogger. He was born in 1818 when Mary Wollenstonecraft Shelley, at the age of 21, wrote the story Frankenstein. I've also written about Shelley in prior entries here on Blogger. In both instances, this image of little guy dressed as Frankenstein for Halloween was featured in my posting.

I don't really like to repeat content, but in this instance, I'm doing it for the beloved character that Mary Shelley created. Therefore, I'm reiterating what I've stated in the past: Frankenstein Day is celebrated on August 30. That particular day is in honor of author Mary Wollenstone Shelley who was born on August 30th in 1797. She wrote the book Frankenstein in 1818. But as I said in my introduction, Frankenstein Friday celebrates the birth of Frankenstein.

I'm also doing this post to pay homage to my figurine who has ben visiting me during the Halloween season for at least five years. When he first arrived he spent his days in my indoor succulent garden as seen in the image directly below, which has also been included in prior blog entries.


I initially met this character at More & More Antiques, a shop on NYC's UWS (pictured below)


that is sells my fauna-flora-insect-themed postcards.




As you may know, each of these cards features an image from the digital and soft-cover version of Words In Our Beak Volume One.




But getting back to my little buddy who dresses Frankenstein for Halloween: last year he attended a wedding ceremony where all the guests came in Halloween costumes! Can you find him in the image posted below?


And after you have found him, if the inclination strikes, and you feel like celebrating Frankenstein Friday, a web-page for Holiday Insights has this to offer: "To celebrate this day, we suggest you read the novel, or see a Frankenstein movie."
