[Holidays] Hobbit Day

While I hate myself for missing Talk Like a Pirate Day last September 19th, at least I can redeem some geek points by commemorating this Geeky Holiday - Hobbit Day!

September 22 is traditionally celebrated as Hobbit Day, the alleged birthday of Tolkien's very famous hobbits, Bilbo and Frodo Baggins. While they were born years apart - Bilbo in 2890 and Frodo in 2968.

This even can be celebrated by hosting a large party with feasting, fireworks and fun much like how the The Fellowship of the Ring started. Other ways of celebrating including walking around barefoot the whole day as hobbits would.

Happy Hobbit Day everyone!
