…And happy birthday to dear old Bilbo Baggins, and his nephew Frodo Baggins!
Now go forth and enjoy a hearty breakfast…and second breakfast…and elvensies…and luncheon…and afternoon tea…and dinner…and supper in true Hobbit fashion! Make it a party of special significance, with lively music and stories, and some good home brew. And while you’re at it, why not go out with a bang with the help of Gandalf’s splendid fireworks? However you celebrate, may your good times be free of any party-ruining Sackville-Baggins (tip: hide your silver spoons, just in case).
But most importantly, may you be surrounded with that which no respectable Hobbit gathering ever lacks: good food and drink and laughter and friends.
I don’t know half of you half as well as I should like, and I like less than half of you half as well as you deserve.
