Celebrating Birthdays and the Promise of Adventure

Today, September the 22nd, is of particular importance to fans of JRR Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings, as it serves as the birthdays of both Bilbo and Frodo Baggins.  Thanks to the calendar work Tolkien did (that can be found in the appendices of The Return of the King) and of the work of websites like TheOneRing.net, fans can see that the date was also significant for being the day Biblo arrived by barrel at Laketown and that Sam would eventually leave for the Grey Havens.

Here’s the extended version of Biblo’s birthday party from Peter Jackson’s rendition of The Fellowship of the Ring.  It’s a nice way to spend a few minutes on this fine Thursday.
