HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY TO J.R.R. TOLKIEN


January is an important month for literature. It was  the birthday of an illustrious writer,  J.R.R. Tolkien, on the 3rd.  His novels “The Hobbit” and “The Lord of the Rings” are loved by billions people. His fans from across the world, each year on 3rd January, celebrate the Professor’s birthday with a simple toast-drinking ceremony. All they need to do is simple, they raise a glass of their choice of drink (not necessarily alcoholic) and say the words “To the Professor” before taking a sip. They sit and enjoy the rest of the drink. In 1955 Tolkien wrote a wonderful book called “The Lord of the Rings”, I know you know (sorry for the pun) much about this novel but in this article there are many things which few people are aware of.

2) Tolkien was a language lover in fact he invented fantastic languages and inspired by them he wrote The Lord of the Rings. The most important are: Sindarin and Quenya (connected to Welsh gaelic and Finnish).

3) The mountains on a satellite of Saturn take their names from Tolkien’s masterpiece. Their names come from the mountains of Middle Earth. For instance, “Grey mountains”, “Mount Doom”, “Mindolluin” and “Lonely mountains”. 


 The Lord of the Rings” trilogy has been adapted for the big screen in a series of films directed by Peter Jackson. The films are: The Fellowship of the Ring , The Two Towers and The Return of the King . If you have never seen those movies, you must catch up with them!

Meanwhile their trailers could excite your curiosity. Here they are:
