Hobbit Day!

“In a hole in the ground, there lived… A Hobbit.”

Today, September 22, is Hobbit Day!

Not only is it Bilbo and Frodo’s birthday, but September 21st, yesterday, marked the 77th anniversary of the day the Hobbit was first published in 1937!

“If more of us valued food and cheer and song above hoards of gold, it would be a merrier world.” ~J. R. R. Tolkien

Have you eaten enough meals today? Breakfast? Second Breakfast? Elevensies? Luncheon? Afternoon Tea? Dinner? Supper? Midnight Snack? Hobbits are very well fed.

And Hobbits, although they live very structured lives, relaxing at home, are full of potential!

“It is not the strength of the body that counts, but the strength of the spirit.” ~J. R. R. Tolkien

We can learn a lot of things from Hobbits. If you haven’t read it, you absolutely should, and if you have, you should read it again! I currently am and I’m enjoying it immensely.

So there you go, and HAPPY HOBBIT DAY EVERYONE!!!!
