Hobbit Day

Hobbit Day is dedicated to amazing, cute and heroic fairy tale characters. The whole world learned about the Hobbits thanks to J. R. R. Tolkien. He presented the characters as shy, peaceful, but party-loving. If September 22 is on the calendar, it’s time to give free rein to fantasies and go on a journey.


Statistically, most fans of The Lord of the Rings saga find the Hobbits funny and call them their favorite characters. It is noteworthy that even those who have not read the books or watched the films know about the Hobbits. Perhaps the best words about these heroes are from Gandalf the Grey: “They are truly amazing!” Not surprisingly, the Hobbits have their own personal day on the holiday calendar.
