Merry Christmas from The Brisbane Tolkien Fellowship

The Brisbane Tolkien Fellowship and The Fortinbras Proudfoot Esq. Foundation wish all our friends in Brisbane and around the world a safe and happy Christmas with their family and friends.

Hobbit Yule.

The Hobbits of the Shire did not have a Christmas celebration but did celebrate a two day holiday at this time of the year called Yule. The first day of the Holiday was the end of the year and the second day was the beginning of the new year. It was a time of much celebration and in true Hobbit fashion parties and feasting was the norm.

Proudfoot has written a small poem to celebrate this special time of the year.

On Yuletide’s Eve

On Yuletide’s Eve, The Shire is peaceful and quiet;

Children are tucked in bed for the night.

The Dragon arrives, to visit his friend,

A Hobbit he’s known, for such a long time.

 

In Shire homes tonight

Children will sleep through the night.

In dreams they’ll see him high,

A dragon flying

In the moon’s silvery light.

 

On Yuletide’s Eve, The Shire is peaceful and quiet;

Children are tucked in bed for the night.

The Dragon arrives, to visit his friend,

A Hobbit he’s known, for such a long time.

 

Into the sky they fly,

Carrying gifts for all The Shire.

By every door’s light,

A delightful surprise

They’ll leave for every child.

 

On Yuletide’s Eve, magic is everywhere;

A dragon flies high through the air.

With morning’s first light, the children will rise,

And at their front doors, presents they will find.
