      So, I don’t know about you guys, but I personally think fictional holidays are a great excuse to eat cake.

      Accordingly, today I made cake and celebrated Biblo and Frodo’s birthday with a couple of friends. (While maintaining social distance. Stay safe, guys. :D).

      Do you guys have any favorite fictional holidays or traditions you got from books?

        Well, I want to celebrate my upcoming birthday like Janner’s (Wingfeather Saga) thirteenth birthday. Honey muffins instead of a cake and (instead of being blindplopped) going hiking.


        @lonathecat

        You celebrated Frodo and Bilbo’s birthday! That’s really cool! Maybe next year my sister and I could do that with some of my other LotR-loving friends…

          Ooh honey muffins sounds good. And haha I understand choosing hiking over blindplopping.

          There’s always next year. 🙂

            Ooo! I’ll have to think on this, but Dragon Day Festival is certainly up there 😀 And your parties sound fun! I never thought of doing that….

              Oh! Dragon day festival is a good one too. Does it have a date that translates to human time? If so I may have to play Leeli’s song on a loop…so long as my family doesn’t go too crazy from it. 🙂
