Woo! It’s September 22nd and you know what that means! It’s the first official day of fall (aka: the best season ever)! Aaand, it also just so happens to be Hobbit Day, the birthday of both Frodo and Bilbo Baggins.
It’s the perfect day to curl up with one of Tolkien’s books (or the movies that came after them) and enjoy your favorite fall drinks and treats while you get all cozy. ❤ And it’s Friday, so why not just continue doing so right on through the weekend? 😛
There’s been hints of it in the air lately, but fall is finally upon us!! 😀
Fall is, without a doubt, my favorite season. The weather’s perfect, there’s the king of all holidays (I’m looking at you, Halloween, you sexy bitch!), cider and donuts, spooky activities galore, hoodies and scarves to be worn, and horror movies and books to be devoured.
Aaaaand today being September 22nd also means that it is none other than Hobbit Day!!
Hobbit Day celebrates the mutual birthday of both Bilbo and Frodo Baggins, and if you don’t know who they are, you need to get yourself schooled because you’re missing out on some good shit.
One of my co-workers recently pointed out that there were only 4 months until Christmas. She was promptly met with boos, hisses, and the laments of the rest of us.
I’ll admit, I used to be a total grinch, but my best friend made it her mission to show me the festive side of the holidays and not just the stressful side I had been experience all my adult life, and the past couple years I’ve been enjoying it more and more.
Well, it’s only August and I’ve already been looking for ideas for Christmas shopping. I actually found something today that I plan on getting my best friend (who is honestly probably my favorite person to shop for). Recently I also found one of my brother’s gifts at a craft tent during my town’s summer fest.
It might seem early, but I like to pick up things here and there when I find something that seems perfect for the people I am shopping for. Plus, it makes holiday shopping wayyyy less stressful the closer it gets to Christmas.
Another perk is having more time to relax and enjoy the fun things like decorating a tree, drinking hot cocoa and watching holiday movies, etc. So it may seem too soon to some, but I regret nothing!!
