Did my musings on the storm in The Hobbit bring this question about, Mho? I was actually going to post an identical thread regarding the giants, but you did it first.
I guess the giants are those creatures that pop up mysteriously, and are never seen again, leaving us to scratch our heads. Tolkien seems like an author who enjoyed prompting head-scratching, and shrugging. I think he wanted us to savor mystery.
The clearest example of that is Tom, but the giants certainly qualify!
