A Toast in Honor of J.J.R. Tolkien “The Professor”
Our Most Beloved Author
Join us in celebrating the wonderful writings of Professor Tolkien with this Toast upon the anniversary of his birthday!
Our Tolkien Toast video is designed to be played as part of your Tolkien Toast ceremonies.
If you press the play button and start this video 2 minutes and 30 seconds before 9 o’clock, the Toast will fall exactly at 9:00!
So whether you are with a crowd or alone, you can make your toast to “The Professor” with panache!
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 were invited to raise a glass and toast
the birthday of this much loved author 21:00 (9 pm) your local time.
The toast is “The Professor”
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.
A Special Thank You to the Tolkien Society!
And a Thank You to all of the photographers, artists and musicians, who made the creation of this Toast to Professor Tolkien possible.
