Every year Tolkien fans across the globe honor the Professor with a toast in his honor and here in Mordor we have created a video to help in making it as wonderful a moment as possible.
“So lift a glass and honor the man!”
On the 3rd January 1892 J.R.R. 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 our much loved author at 21:00 (9 pm) your local time.
For those unfamiliar with British toast-drinking ceremonies: 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 that’s more appropriate for your drink). Sit and enjoy the rest of your drink.
