About BY JILL DAVIS
What could be more appropriate for October than
Frankenstein Friday, celebrated on the last Friday of
the month in honor of the birth of Frankenstein and its
creator, Mary Shelley. A Mr. Ron MacCloskey of Westfield,
New Jersey, created this day in 1997. Ron supposedly
chose Friday since more people can party than on
other nights of the week. Notably, the cartoonist Charles
Addams, best known for the mysterious and spooky, altogether
ooky Addams Family, was also from Westfield.
Coincidence? Perhaps not.
Halloween is on a Thursday this year and there are lots
of things going on in the area which will get kids of all
ages into the Halloween mood.
Here’s what’s coming up over the next few weeks:
