On this date in 1892 John Ronald Reuel Tolkien was born. Most know him as, J.R.R Tolkien, the creator of Middle Earth, Gollum, and Bilbo Baggins. An alternate world fabulously crafted, spinning tales, an adventure that has entertained generation. The Hobbit has been selling books since 1937. The legendary works have become movies, inspired games and music.

Today, those who wish to honor Professor Tolkien, as asked by The Tolkien Society, will stand and offer a toast by saying “The professor!” at 9 o’clock today. The society also has a page where you can find out where others are toasting and to let others know where you will toast.

Since today is a day to toast the creator of hobbits, I thought Don’t Go Drinking with Hobbits by Marc Gunn would be a fitting song to close with. You can find Marc at the links below.

Also of note, there is another day associated with J.R.R. Tolkien. That is “Tolkien Reading Day“, annually on March 25th. Fans are encouraged to get together and read their favorite Tolkien passages.
