Happy J.R.R. Tolkien Day!
Grab your fantastical friends and get ready to party
John Ronald Reuel was born on January 3, 1892 in Bloemfontein, South Africa. Tonight at 9 p.m., the members of the Tolkien Society invite you to pour yourself a drink (a WHOLE pint if you want), put on your comfiest cape, brush up on your Elvish and raise your glass to the The Hobbit author’s 121st birthday. Mmm … perhaps some of Beorn’s mead will be in order.
