Raising a glass this Christmas …

Christmas Candles

25 December: the Company leaves Rivendell … tough luck!

It’s that time of year again where even we, the most ardent of Middle-earth fans, need to put down our books and DVDs and join friends and family in this yearly celebration.

That does not mean your Christmas Day shouldn’t have a nice The Lord of the Rings reading session or a The Hobbit viewing marathon right after a nice meal.

It’s on the Eve of this occasion that I wish all you friends and followers the best this Christmas. Whether or not you celebrate this event, I hope you get to spend these coming days with the ones you love and may you always be healthy and strong.

If you value Tolkien’s stories as much as I do, remember that friendship and solidarity are two themes at the core of the Middle-earth legends. These are not just fantastical elements, they exist in our real world too and should be shared amongst ourselves.

So, as I find myself toasting during our Christmas lunch tomorrow, I’ll be raising a glass and thinking about all you folks out there and wishing you health and prosperity.

Have a truly wonderful Christmas.

  1. Merry Christmas! I got my Tolkien reading session in today. My parents bought me The Silmarillion illustrated by Ted Nasmith. I’m really looking forward to reading it after following your chapter summaries.

  2. I enjoy all your posts, but this one in particular. So, I wish you and yours a very happy Christmas and holiday season!
