Halloween is one of my favorite holidays. I love the chance to be creative and silly for absolutely no reason at all. And of course all that chocolate and candy doesn’t hurt one bit either.
Halloween is only 5 short days away. This year we get a full weekend celebration. Friday, Saturday and Sunday. In anticipation of the big event, this Friday will be Frankenstein Friday.
Created in 1997, it celebrates the creation of Frankenstein and all his many incarnations since. From mama Mary Shelley who wrote the original novel, to papa Boris Karloff who began the classic Frank stein character.
How do you celebrate such a day? Any way you want. Watch some Frankenstein themed movies with popcorn and dimmed lights –sure to give you the willies. Get a door hanging and play pin the tail on Frankie. Draw a picture of the big green guy, or make Frankenstein cupcakes with green frosting and a candy face.
You can scare yourself silly by reading Dean Koontz’s version of the modern day Frankenstein – a 4 part series. Have a good laugh by watching one of my old favorites Young Frankenstein. Get out some face paint and do your best rendition of the his big mug.
Whatever you do have a good time. Halloween is a time for playfulness and fun, and this year we’ve been blessed with good weather and a long weekend to celebrate. Enjoy!
