September 22 is the birthday of Bilbo and Frodo Baggins, but do you really need a reason to celebrate all things Hobbit? The correct answer is not at all.
Here’s a few ideas to help you celebrate your Hobbitiness in true Hobbit Style.
The most important part of a good Hobbit Day celebration is Food and Drink. Celebrate the right way with a few (or all of the following):
- Mince Pies
- Raspberry Jam
- Apple Tarts
- Cold Chicken
- and Nice Crispy Bacon
Make sure not to forget that true Hobbits expect multiple meals a day. Most importantly don’t forget to indulge in a nice Second Breakfast. (for more information on Hobbit meals go HERE )
In between meals, when not smoking a good pipe or sleeping, enjoy a little outside activity or sit down and challenge you friends to a good game of Riddles or you could retrace your Family Tree which is always good fun if you forget that you third cousin twice removed married one of those Tooks. Some of us might have to brush up on our Hobbit Names – henceforth I am Lila Sandybanks, also known as Linwe Nenharma in Elvish.
Perhaps you’d like to read a few good stories – might I suggest starting here:
Or perhaps you’d like to relax and listen to stories being told:

Don’t be afraid to let your hair down a little and have a good time.
I highly recommend ending the night with a rousing display of fireworks – set off by a responsible adult (and remember Hobbits don’t come of age until 33)
