About Hobbit Day
Date When Celebrated: Hobbit Day is always observed on September 22
Hobbit Day is today a September 22 holiday to really enjoy. It is the birthday of Frodo and Bilbo Baggins, two of the main hobbit characters from The Lord of the Rings. There also is a Hobbit Week, which occurs on the Sunday through Saturday where Hobbit Day falls.
Hobbits are little guys, and little gals, just two to four feet tall. They are our heroes in the Lord of the Rings movies, performing great acts of heroism and courage. Notably, Hobbits go around barefoot and eat seven meals a day. They also like to dance, have parties, and enjoy fireworks. The movie “The Fellowship of the Ring” opened in this manner, celebrating Bilbo Baggins’s birthday.
You can celebrate this special holiday, by going to a Lord of the Rings movie or reading any of author J.R.R. Tolkien’s books that include hobbits. You can hold a Hobbit party…. don’t forget the fireworks. You may also choose to walk around barefoot all day. That sounds like fun. As for me, I will celebrate this day by enjoying seven meals.
How to Celebrate Hobbit Day
- Watch a Lord of the Rings movie.
- Better still, binge-watch the entire Lord of the Rings movies.
- Hold a birthday party for Frodo and Bilbo Baggins.
- Eat seven meals today.
- Walk around barefoot.
“Courage is found in unlikely places.” – – J.R.R. Tolkien
History and Origin of Hobbit Day
