September 22 - Hobbit Day

This Sunday, September 22, is Hobbit Day! For those of you who may not know what Hobbit Day is, it's Bilbo's and Frodo's birthday. It's also the first day of Autumn. So, obviously it needs celebration. All around the world people will be celebrating the world of JRR Tolkien. Here are some photos of what my family did last year for Hobbit Day.



You can make a party tree too! All it takes is lots of glass jars, string and small candles. The electric candle works too, but a real one is brighter. We also created a Hobbit hole out of cardboard. We used two large boxes, which once flattened could be painted and then attached to a wooden frame. To cut out the door we simply used a box cutter. The façade of Bilbo's house was a huge hit, and not that hard to make. Now you're probably saying to yourself, well that's all great, but how in the heck did you know what hobbits eat? We simply visited for recipes and ideas. Overall we had a blast, how will you celebrate Hobbit Day?
