Tolkien week began in 1978 and is observed every year in September, falling on the week containing September 22 (Hobbit Day). It celebrates the author, J.R.R. Tolkien (along with his son, Christopher Tolkien) and his wonderful literary compositions dealing with Middle Earth; The Silmarillion, The Hobbit, The Lord the Rings (Fellowship of the Ring, The Two Towers, The Return of the King), Unfinished Tales, and The History of Middle Earth.
Today is Hobbit Day - which is Frodo and Bilbo's birthday! My little sister, Aly and I celebrate Hobbit Day annually; this is our third year. It's our annual tradition of celebrating by eating six meals, baring our feet, and enjoying living like hobbits for a day! Though honestly, it was 44 degrees this morning... you do see one hobbit with tights on...
We even had an honorary hobbit today, the little girl I nanny!
|I doodle while I watch...|
|Aly watching Fellowship of the Ring|
|I decided I want a book tattoo of Tolkien's personal mark.|
|It's a bit above her reading level|
|Smiling because she's normally not allow play with my books|
|Fellowship of the Ring story-time!|
|Me and my honorary hobbit|
Happy Hobbit Day! I will be celebrating Tolkien Week - all week, sharing different things I love about Tolkien. That's what I'm Tolkien about this week! Hope you had a great day of eating and relaxing!
