September 22nd Hobbit Day

J.R.R. Tolkien first created Hobbits with his “Lord of the Rings” and later with “The Fellowship of the Rings”. In case you’ve never heard of Bilbo Baggins or Frodo Baggins, they are small human like characters with hairy feet who are generally very gentle creatures but can fight if backed into a corner. They live in small shires, with small homes somewhere between the human world and the magical world of lore. I have always liked the idea of the Hobbit birthday where the creature celebrating their birthday actually gives gifts rather than receive them.

How to celebrate – Read the “Lord of the Rings”. Watch the film “The Fellowship of the Rings”. Visit New Zealand, where the film was shot.
