Welcome!

HobbitDay.info has all the information you need
about what Hobbit Day is
and how you can celebrate it in style.

In the days of their peace and prosperity they were a merry folk. They dressed in bright colours, being notably fond of yellow and green;.....

And laugh they did, and eat, and drink, often and heartily, being fond of simple jests at all times, and of six meals a day (when they could get them). They were hospitable and delighted in parties, and in presents, which they gave away freely and eagerly accepted.

If more of us valued food and cheer and song above hoarded gold it would be a merrier world

What is Hobbit Day?

Professor Tolkien had a special talent for adding specific dates to the events in his best loved work, meaning that fans of all things Middle-earth can mark those dates through the year.

Main events celebrated by Tolkien fans include Tolkien's birthday, the destruction of the one ring.....and Hobbit day!

Tolkien's most famous and best-loved work, The Lord of the Rings, begins with plans for a very special birthday party for his 2 greatest heroes, Bilbo & Frodo Baggins, to be held on September the 22nd. From that party has come Hobbit day, a day to celebrate all things Hobbit and all things Tolkien.

With a focus very much on celebrating the Hobbit side of Middle-earth life, Hobbit day is the perfect chance to prove that if more of us did value food and cheer and song above hoarded gold that it would be a merrier world.

In whatever way you are a fan of Hobbits, Hobbit day is your day to revel in it, celebrate it, enjoy it. Make every September 22nd your Hobbit day!

The very first Hobbit film

Put together in a rush to prevent film rights expiring, this is very first film adaptation of The Hobbit. A real rarity to enjoy.

Be warned though - its not really what you'd call an authentic adaptation....
