The Origins of Hobbit Day

Hobbit Day first appeared in the public consciousness with the publication of "The Fellowship of the Ring," the first book in J.R.R. Tolkien's epic fantasy trilogy, "The Lord of the Rings." The book's prologue, "Concerning Hobbits," introduces us to the hobbit way of life and their customs, including their love for birthdays. Bilbo Baggins, a central character in the story, is known for his extravagant eleventy-first (111th) birthday party, where he famously disappears, leaving his possessions and the Shire behind.

As a result, Bilbo's birthday became the inspiration for Hobbit Day. Tolkien fans worldwide adopted September 22nd as a day to celebrate the hobbit spirit, their appreciation for good food and drink, and the joy of sharing stories with friends and family. Hobbit Day is a reminder of the simple pleasures of life and the importance of valuing the beauty in everyday moments.
