“Today is my eleventy-first birthday…a very curious number and a very respectable age for a Hobbit.”
–Bilbo Baggins, Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring

Today would be J.R.R. Tolkien’s 111th birthday. This is the same birthday that Bilbo Baggins celebrates at the beginning of the Lord of the Rings trilogy. Parties are planned all over the world to toast Professor Tolkien’s birthday. These toasts will be recorded into a documentary to honor the event sponsored by the Tolkien Society. As a side note, numerologists should note that this “curious” birthday comes on a very interesting date–01/02/03.
