1420! The Tolkien Birthday Toast

9pm, 3rd January. Don't forget.

You are kindly requested to grab a glass of your favourite tipple and raise a toast to "The Professor!".

And you may see more on the Tolkien Society page - maybe even add what you'll be drinking here.

Are we supposed to raise it 9 pm GMT or 9 pm the current british time or 9 pm our own time?

At your local time, I believe!

Thus avoiding the risk of people raising a glass of porter at 11am during a business meeting or a class in Chemistry. Of course, this means the Prof could get 24 lots of toasts in one day...

Today's the day - Tolkien's birthday! Happy Birthday to our favourite author!

Will you be joining in the toast? I plan to raise a glass of champagne at 9pm CET this evening. As Lal says, the toast is meant to take place at your local time; the drink is your choice and need not be alcoholic.

I didn't have any champagne but I make a toast for Tolkien with some beer...guess that's ok too, even though it's not really my favourite

An interesting fact- if the Professor had still been alive today, he would have been 115, that's as long as Erendis was Queen of Numenor

Due to my busy (read: Not very busy) schedule, all I had to hand at 9:00 yesterday was a glass of coke. It was a really nice glass though, and that's what counts.
Now, when is Christopher Tolkien's birthday?

Once again it's Tolkien's birthday - I hope many members will join me and Tolkien fans all over the world in toasting the man who brought us here!

At 9 pm this evening, I will raise my glass of bubbly to the Professor.

You could ignore official advice and do it at 9pm GMT anyway - as I think this is much nicer and then everyone globally will be doing it at the same time, and not just little groups of folk at verious 9pms

In which case everyone can join in, though they may have missed the official time

Well, I'm a wee bit late as 'tis 3:28 here and we've been all a-gog over the announcement of the new Doctor Who.

Pity we didn't plan a chat to celebrate. We should, one of these years.

Bah! The professor would have loathed a Mordorian contraption such as universal timezone synchronisation! Might as well live under the black cloud of Mordor as toast him at 9:00 Greenwich time!

At least, that's my excuse... at 9:00 Greenwich time I was in nothing resembling a toasting mood or time of day.

But at 9:00 more locally, I was drinking an English beer and reading aloud "The Grey Company" and "The Muster of Rohan" and having a grand time.

Here's to the Professor's 117th! (1892-2009 DOES make 117, right? The whole fact that this isn't 2008 anymore had me confused...)

Yes, that was my conclusion. It was the first time I'd had to use the figure "2009" in any computation.

I had an import beer and watched ice hockey (a sport our good Professor would have loved were he born Canadian). However, compared to your verbal oration of favourite chapters, I feel like a deadbeat Tolkienite. I shall make amends by pouring over The Two Towers before bed.

I was in an 'on call' status with my employer, and regrettably was unable to toast the Professor with my drink of choice. Perhaps next year's timing will be kinder.

Well Happy New Year everyone,

As its the 3rd of Jan, remember we have another anniversary to celebrate, JRR Tolkien's birthday.

Apparently a toast at 9pm local time is the thing,

Cheers!

Good thing you just posted here, I would have otherwise totally forgotten this, I'll definitely get a beer at 10 PM CET.

Maybe we could do this in our Barrow chat?

Tomorrow's the Professor's 120th birthday, so be sure you have your favourite drink in the house, or meet with friends at a nice place, so you can toast the man without whom we'd never have met!

Can't imagine better way of celebrating The Prof's birthday

I have to see yet what I am going to toast with, but since I've been keeping this tradition carefully for several years (I believe since this thread was started), I'll make sure to toast The Prof even this year.

Good luck!!!! I shall think of you too - it will probably be with a G&T.. I have an African inspired gin that will be a nod to Tolkien's birthplace.

I've done this with Bethberry earlier today, and I'm doing it once again with all of you.

The Professor! Happy eleventy-tenth, Mr. Tolkien! Many people including myself were inspired by your work, and this is the day we make ourselves remember this. Thank you!



And happy new year everyone!
