Frankenstein Friday (October 26th)

Frankenstein is the creation of Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley. The genesis of the story came from a dream, which Shelly incorporated into a story which was the result of a writing challenge issued during a Swiss vacation Mary took with companions Percy Shelley (her future husband), Lord Byron, and John Polidori. Nearly two-hundred years later the legend lives on through dozens of book, television, movie, and stage adaptations.

Thanks for reading our post today. Here at Park Station, we love to find new ways to celebrate with our residents. We hope you enjoy some of the more obscure October holidays. Happy Halloween!
