Happy Hobbit Day Everyone!
Today is the birthday of Bilbo and Frodo two of my favourite Hobbits. Although the Shire calendar and the Gregorian calendar do not quite match up, this day has generally been agreed upon as Hobbit Day.
As some of you might have guessed I do love all things Middle Earth and I must admit Hobbits have always been a favourite. They are so loyal and full of hope, how can anybody not love them?
The other reason I love Hobbits is because they have possibly one of the best eating schedules imaginable. In the film they try and have seven meals a day and in The Fellowship of the Ring the book they will have six meals a day if they can manage it and that is if my memory of the book serves me correctly. They have a second breakfast, what is not to like?
Anyway, I think we should all try and be a bit more Hobbit. If we could all be a loyal friend, who is full of hope and try to always see the good in the world and love and respect this world we live in, the world would be a much better place to live in. And yes going for a nice drink at our local Green Dragon with friends to talk about anything and everything is also an excellent Hobbit tradition.
Happy Hobbit Day!
