Happy Destruction of the Ring Day!

Happy Destruction of the Ring Day!
All hobbit months have 30 days, and so normally our 31 days of January + 28 days of February means that we're a day behind them at this point. The hobbit calendar's March 25th is equivalent to our calendar's March 24th. But not in leap years! An extra day, a missing day, it all adds up. So TODAY, March 25th in the year 3019 of the Third Age, THE RING WAS DESTROYED!

Cuio i Pherian anann! Aglar'ni Pheriannath!

By his blindness to see that the warmth of his being
Is promised for his seeing, his reaching so clearly[/i][/color]

Great! I'm just finishing up my term paper for US History Ap, a similar daunting task! I plan to finish at around 2 in the morning (its due tomorrow! :eek: )
I gotta admit that I'm a little bit confused
Sometimes it seems to me as if I'm just being used
Gotta stay awake, gotta try and shake off this creeping malaise
If I don't stand my own ground, how can I find my way out of this maze?

Wow, Sam! I didn't even think about that! I celebrated Destruction of the Ring Day without even knowing it!?!?! :shock:
I just went to see ROTK for my second time last night since it was the last night that it ran in our theater....and I havn't quite finished the third book yet. But yesterday I did finish the chapters about Frodo and Sam's journey into Mordor to destroy the ring. Lemme see...yep, today I am starting on the chapter called The Steward and The King. So I celebrated it quite appropriately! :D LOL
