Happy Hobbit Day!

The entire Shire is buzzing today, because it’s Hobbit Day! Not only that, but two lovely Hobbiton residents celebrate their birthday today.

I am of course referring to Messrs. Bilbo & Frodo Baggins, the uncle and nephew duo from Bag End who are entirely too adventurous for their own good.

Of course it’s been a while since Bilbo’s eleventy-first and Frodo’s thirty-third birthday. But that doesn’t stop me from decorating the Party Tree, gathering the entire Shire for the party – possibly with the exception of the Sackville-Bagginses, of course –  and bringing out keg after keg of Southfarting Ale from the Green Dragon.

Here’s a reminder of how hobbits celebrate:

Happy birthday, Bilbo & Frodo, my dear Bagginses!

Oh, and if this is you right now…

What is Bagginses

… we can’t be friends.
