National Frankenstein Day

Kelly headshot1 National Frankenstein Day

P. Kelly Smith

Are you a fan of scary movies?  Unfortunately, I am not. I blame my aversion to thrills and chills on a childhood friend who made me watch Nightmare on Elm Street. For at least a year following this traumatic event, I made sure the porch light (which was just outside my bedroom) stayed on all night long. I guess I thought if Freddy Krueger were coming for me, at least I’d see him first!

While I may not be a fan of most Halloween villains, I do have a soft spot for Frankenstein. I mean, it’s not his fault he is the way is . . . he’s the result of a scientific experiment gone wrong. I think a lot of people feel this way because today just happens to be National Frankenstein Day! And with just two days until Halloween, it’s the perfect day to celebrate this lovable, misunderstood villain.

Luckily I didn’t have to look very far to find dear Frankie. It appears he’s a favorite among today’s top paper crafters. Just look what I found in our spooktacular September/October 2012 issue:

Who wouldn’t want to receive a bag of treats from this stud monster?

Classmate Mini Treat Bag by Kelley Eubanks:

Kelley used a fun alphabet stamp set to personalize this adorable treat bag.

And this cutie was found in our boo-tiful September/October 2010 issue:

Franken-Scars Card by Windy Robinson

I love how Windy stamped her sentiment vertically to line up with the three stacked Frankensteins.

Has Frankie bewitched you too? Leave a comment telling me your favorite Halloween villain and I’ll pick three winners to take home Hero Arts’ Happy Halloween stamp set!

  2. Kitty says:

    I like “Frankie” but I think Black Cats are the most misunderstood “villians” of Halloween! They don’t deserve the bad cat tag!

  3. Mary Rok says:

    I would have to say the werewolf is my favorite.

  4. Joanie Ketcham says:

    I agree with Kitty who says that black cats are misunderstood, I had two and they were such babies!!

    My favorite Halloween villain is the witch. She’s so misunderstood :-)

  27. Jennifer says:

    Happy Halloween! I’m not a fan of scary movies either….if I had to meet a Villian I would have to say I would be happy (gulp) to meet Frankenstein. A big guy like that has to have a heart full of cuddles right?

  28. defi says:

    My favorite Halloween villain is a witch

  29. Kim G says:

    A black cat!

  30. Cindy H. says:

    My most favorite Halloween character has to be the witch. There are good witches, bad witches, pretty witches, ugly witches, and the list goes on but the best witch is the one who rings my doorbell on Halloween and yells Trick or Treat! :)

    My favorite villian has always been the witch!!
