Among Hobbits, there has arisen a curious custom in the celebration of birthdays. Hobbits celebrate their own birthdays by sending cards and presents to their friends and relations. In this way a hobbit receives cards from their friends and relations at random all during the year. This most excellent practice has the added benefit that one need not remember anyones birthday but their own, an important consideration as we get older. In this tradition, I will now, from this year forward celebrate my birthday hobbit fashion. In this my Fifty Eighth year.
