Image: Frankenstein | Paperback: 144 pages | by Mary Shelley (Author). Publisher: CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform (November 25, 2017)Frankenstein's Birthday/First Published (1818)
-- Mary Shelley, Percy Shelley, Lord Byron, and John Polidori decided to have a competition to see who could write the best horror story. After thinking for days, Mary dreamt about a scientist who created life and was horrified by what he had made; her dream later evolved into the story within the novel. Terrifying, unnerving, more dangerous than death, Victor Frankenstein's monster has stalked the halls of English literature since its debut on March 11, 1818. Birthed on the same stormy night which saw the debut of the romantic vampire in horror fiction, FRANKENSTEIN haunts our collective unconscious still.
Read: Frankenstein
-- A novel written by English author Mary Shelley about the young student of science Victor Frankenstein, who creates a grotesque but sentient creature in an unorthodox scientific experiment. Shelley started writing the story when she was eighteen, and the novel was published when she was twenty. The first edition was published anonymously in London in 1818. Shelley's name appears on the second edition, published in France in 1823.

Bureau of Indian Affairs Established (1824)
- Although the bureau, which was called the Office of Indian Affairs, was formed on March 11, 1824, similar agencies had existed in the U.S. government as far back as 1775, when a trio of Indian agencies was created by the Second Continental Congress. Benjamin Franklin and Patrick Henry were among the early commissioners, who were charged with negotiating treaties with Native Americans and obtaining their neutrality during the American Revolutionary War.
Dream 2011 Day

National Worship of Tools Day
- There are few things the male population worships more than his tools. To some, a tool is a natural extension of their arm. So, Worship of Tools Day is a logical day of celebration.
