Yep, that’s right, it’s my birthday! I’m now a ripe, old 22! But when it comes to book birthdays, my first thought is, of course, Lord of the Rings and Bilbo’s 111th birthday in the Shire. The whole hobbit community partied the night away, with tons of dancing, drinks, and pipeweed.
And who could forget Gandalf’s magical fireworks?
It’s one of my favorite scenes in literature and cinema, and even though my birthday will be celebrated on a much smaller scale, I’ll leave you with Bilbo’s famous words:
“I don’t know half of you half as well as I should like, and I like less than half of you half as well as you deserve.”
Thanks for reading!
