Fans Raise A Glass To Tolkien On His 123rd Birthday


This past Saturday marked what would have been J.R.R. Tolkien’s 123rd birthday, and fans celebrated by raising a glass in his honor and sharing the photos on social media. The toast has become an annual tradition held at 9pm local time that has carried on even after his death on September 2, 1973. From dragon goblets to pint glasses to fireplace shrines, the pictures tell the story of fans who are grateful for his life’s work.

See some of the pictures after the break.
