Toasting the Professor

I’m posting this early for those Tolkien fans who are somehow unaware because today’s the day, and when it comes time later on for me to toast, I’ll actually be doing so instead of blogging.  Go figure.  Besides that, some of you overseas will have missed your turn by then if I don’t post early.  So…

The tradition is as simple as a hobbit could wish.  Every year on Professor Tolkien’s birthday (that would be today), at exactly 9 pm in each timezone around the globe, you simply raise a glass (or other preferred drinking vessel… frosty mug, drinking horn, or whatever) of your favorite drink (of any kind, alcoholic or not), kindly spare a thought for the man who gave us Middle-Earth, and say with reverence:

“The Professor!”
