September 22nd is Bilbo and Frodo Baggins’ birthday!! But this year the day has grown into World Hobbit Day as we also salute Tolkien Week AND the 75th anniversary of The Hobbit publication! So to celebrate this perfect storm of Tolkien highlights, TheOneRing.net’s Discussion Boards is hosting a party with activities covering several Boards this weekend.
Below is a list of party activities TORN members have created to share across 3 Discussion Boards: Main, Off Topic, and The Lord of the Rings Movie. Sadly, the Hobbit Discussion Board will not be one of the party-stops. That place is just way too busy with excited discussions about Peter Jackson’s latest Hobbit Movie Trailer!
Keep an eye on this spot as we add links to the various activities when they are posted throughout the day. We hope you enjoy celebrating J.R.R. Tolkien’s world and The Hobbit with us all weekend long!
