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.

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.
Fantastic! That’s a great edition. Hope you enjoy it 🙂
I enjoy all your posts, but this one in particular. So, I wish you and yours a very happy Christmas and holiday season!
Best wishes to you too Susan 🙂
