Via Bettnet we learn the following from the Tolkien Society:
On the 3rd January 1892 JRR Tolkien was born in Bloemfontein, South Africa. To celebrate this event, on this day each year Tolkien fans around the world are invited to raise a glass and toast the birthday of this much loved author.
The toast is "The Professor".
To make the Birthday Toast, you stand, raise a glass of your choice of drink (not necessarily alcoholic), and say the words The Professor before taking a sip (or swig, if thats more appropriate for your drink). Sit and enjoy the rest of your drink.
Sign up to drink a toast to JRR Tolkien here.
Happy 115th birthday J.R.R. Tolkien!
Happy birthday, indeed!
If he was alive, I wonder what gift Tolkien would give me at his birthday party.
I don’t know, but I bet the fireworks show would be awesome.
Make that his eleventy-sixth birthday...
Ha! You’re absolutely right. :-)
