Where have you all been … ?
I’ve been waiting for you to join in my festivities on this blog for over two weeks now! 😉
It’s 22 September and that means two things: Birthdays and Celebrations.
That’s right. If you’re in the loop of who’s who in Middle-earth, then you may or may not know that both Bilbo and Frodo Baggins celebrate their birthday today.
In honour of these two milestones in Middle-earth history, fans worldwide get to celebrate Hobbit Day (and Tolkien Week) in any way possible that demonstrates our love for the fandom.
I’m not planning to walk outside barefoot any time soon – though I’m sure there are some brave souls out there who do so.
Instead, I’m conducting my celebrations in a quiet way. The odd second breakfast here, the film-viewing marathon there.
In fact, this week I’ve started a back-to-back double trilogy marathon that should see me through till the end of this week. It’s The Fellowship of the Ring first and the proof is behind those not-so-hobbity pair of feet…
Reading favourite passages and chapters from the books is also on my list and I’ll be sharing further posts and updates during the week.
In the meantime, you cannot miss visiting Middle-earth News for day-to-day posts as the week goes by. First, is a selection of delicious recipes you can try out to accompany you on your trilogy marathon, book reading or frog dancing activities.
Also, do not forget to head over to Tolkien Read Through to glimpse some of the amazing artwork that Lisa is producing in honour of this occasion.
Neither of the two Gandalfs seemed to approve of the other …
So what are you doing on this day? Do you have anything Hobbit or Middle-earth related plans for this week?
