Today is Tolkien Reading Day! The 25th of March is the date of the downfall of the Lord of the Rings (Sauron) and the fall of Barad-dûr.
And they’ve just announced they’re closing public libraries in Australia too =(
I am a big fan…I prefer “The Hobbit” and “Lord of the Rings” over Harry Potter, every single day.
I found a page that has a lot of different food and drink recipes, if you want to or have planned a Tolkien theme type party.
Can you imagine having two most wonderful things on the same day?
First we have World Rhino Day
Over three short decades, we’ve lost all but a few black rhinos. In 1993, less than 400 rhinos remained in Kenya. The overwhelming mission to save rhinoceros began. The Ol Pejeta Conservancy, a 90,000-acre sanctuary was chosen to house 20 black rhinos, a population that has since grown to 120 with ongoing support. Now, as East Africa’s largest population of black rhinos, playing a huge role in rhinoceros conservation.
Then we also have “Hobbit Day”
Why 25 March?
The 25th of March is the date of the downfall of the Lord of the Rings (Sauron) and the fall of Barad-dûr. It has been organised by the Tolkien Society since 2003 to encourage fans to celebrate and promote the life and works of J.R.R. Tolkien by reading favourite passages
Regarding a lot of my posts lately, I have been feeling like I want to add more, but the quote sums it up perfectly.
I have to say I wish that JRR Tolkien was alive today…and not in a terrifying Zombie, completely full-formed.
I love what JRR Tolkien honoured us with and sharing with us, his beautiful magical world. Do we deserve this beautiful world? Probably not, but he shared it with us anyway.
I am not really a Potterhead and I really only love Aslan in Narnia. I like both those series, but there is something just that little bit more to Tolkien’s world for me, personally.
Do you all have a favourite “World”
Today is important for two reasons:
The reciognition and information spreading of one of the worlds largest and heavily endangered animals. The Rhino…A Day which celebrates ALL five species of Rhino: Black, White, Greater One-Horned, Sumatran and Javan.
Today is also Hobbit Day…Hobbit Day is the birthday of both Bilbo and Frodo Baggins (different years though, obviously) The two main characters/protagonist of the two greatest series ever written!
I was really struggling to find something this week for my “Magical Monday” posting. I always love to make a post on Magical Monday, mainly because I do hope that it cheers people up on Monday mornings.
So after liking 10 pictures on this particular page, I decided to share this page with you all as well! It’s a Facebook page called “Middle Earth’s Art” The drawings on there are amazing! They are beautiful and well drawn. They like to post a picture with an appropriate quote. If I could like every single picture on this page without making everyone on my friends list driven crazy, I probably would like every single one when they are posted.
I believe that these are drawings that JRR Tolkien would proud of himself. If you are stuck on a drawing or are having writers block on a fantasy script, I would strongly recommend looking at these pictures and prepare to be inspired!
(They also have a Twitter…It’s the same pictures being posted on Facebook, but on Twitter…https://www.facebook.com/MiddleArtPage?fref=nf )
