The festival (with bunnies) is Easter.
The animal food thing is Straw Heads.

Deep underground I lie.
Some question whether or not I can fly.
I was someone's bane.
Can you give my name?

(Ok, not very good poetry)

Noone has said it yet. Well, actually, I don't remember the answer to the riddle right now, but I know none of those are it. I'll give a clue after a few more guesses.

Well, I'm assuming that the Wormtongue bookmark has the little lizard thing on it. When Wormtongue considers leaving Saruman, Saruman reminds him and tells all the hobbits gathered around that Wormtongue killed Lotho, even though Grima denies it at first. It is at this time that he "realizes his wrong". He kills Saruman, and the grey mist that rises from Saruman's body "turns West then East then gone".

Okay, I'll remember that. Next one:

In life I flew from here to there,
A messenger of great despair.
Little is known of my demise,
But after death I became a disguise.
Flitting secretly to and fro,
I was a thing of ghastly shadow.


This one is rather cryptic. Good luck!

It is Thuringwethil. She was a messenger of Morgoth, and she was killed by Luthien and her bat-hame was used by the latter to get into Angband.

Yes, Finwe, you're correct. I realized after I posted the question that Thuringwethil had been used already, but I decided to leave it. So now it's your turn...

Draugluin.
He was a wolf servant of Sauron, and after he was slain by Huan, Beren used his pelt as a disguise.

Don't look too closely
at the first of its kind
'cause before you know it
you are turning blind

Surely the greatest
not able to fly
along came a downer
who caused him to die.

Eyes of this kind,
Can sometimes enchant.
Not sure of all,
But one definitely so.
Some traverse,
the airy paths,
Some traverse,
the earthen paths,
What are these
slippery, slimy,
not slippery, not slimy,
All together,
very not likeables,
creatures?

Now try to get that!

This isn't that good but:

I was lord of a host, or was it just three
I killed two of the kings that came over the sea
In Gondolin's fall I met my fate
Where I was killed by an elf lord with all of his hate.

The obvious answer regarding the last part would be Gothmog, the Uruloki; I'm not entirely sure what you mean about kings though... Sauron killed two kings, but the rest of it doesn't fit him.

The correct answer is Gothmog you are right Gwaihir. The first line was supposed to refer to the original host of balrogs, that was reduced to just seven or three. The line about the kings was the two high kings of the Noldor that Gothmog killed, Feanor and Fingon. I'm sorry the clue wasn't very good.
