Hobbit Day is September 22
September 22 is Hobbit Day, a celebration of the birthdays of Bilbo and Frodo Baggins from J.R.R. Tolkien's Middle Earth Cycle books. Some Tolkien fans celebrate the birthdays on September 12 or 14 because of discrepancies between the Gregorian calendar and the Shire calendar used in Tolkien's books, although the American Tolkien Society has been observing Hobbit Day on September 22 since 1978.
Fans celebrate with large feasts inspired by those in the Tolkien books. Because hobbits do not wear shoes, some fans spend the day barefoot.
