At 9pm (local times) on January 3rd fans around the world are invited to raise a glass and toast J.R.R. Tolkien’s Birthday.

The Birthday Toast event should be understood to consist of uttering the time-honoured words “The Professor” and holding aloft a drink (not necessarily alcoholic) of an individual’s choice.

The Tolkien Society has some webpages here where fans across the globe can let other fans know where they’ll be celebrating if they’re hosting a party, or just what particular beverage they’ll be raising. Fans will be able to check the website and see who is celebrating where and if they wish to get in touch and join in.
