Get reading and watching Frankenstein books and movies because Aug. 30 is Frankenstein Day.
Frankenstein Day was made to honour Mary Wollenstone Shelley, the writer of Frankenstein.
The date was chosen because it was Mary's birthday. Mary was born in 1797.
Just days after her birth, her mother died, leaving her father to care for Mary and her half-sister. Her father later remarried and she grew up with a cruel stepmother and emotionally distant father.
Mary later married a well-educated man by the name of Percy Bysshe Shelley. The couple had several children but only one lived to become an adult, Percy.
Mary died in London at the age of 54.
Mary wrote six other novels but Frankenstein was her most successful.
It became one of the most famous novels ever published and one of the best stories ever written by a female. She wrote it in 1818.
Frankenstein is about Dr. Frankenstein who created a human-like monster known only as "Frankenstein's Monster".
The book has inspired various stage and film productions with the most famous film version being the 1931s Frankenstein, produced by Universal Studios, directed by James Whale and starring Boris Karloff as the monster.
On Frankenstein Day, there are many things that you can do to celebrate it.
You could read the original novel or watch a film or television version of it. Or if you want to do something more, you could go and see a stage production of it.
Or maybe you like to dress up, well you could dress up as "Frankenstein's Monster" and have some fun.
So on this Aug. 30, make sure to take a second and do your best Frankenstein impression in honour of Frankenstein Day.
