So what is The Hobbit Second Breakfast? A celebration of the 75th anniversary of the publication of J.R.R. Tolkien's The Hobbit. Participants are urged to have a very hobbity meal tomorrow morning.
Take a look at the poster below. Can you guess what's not quite right about the event?
Ahem, yes, the meal served at 11 a.m. is elevensies. Tsk, tsk.
So when is "second breakfast"? I'd place it at roughly 8:30 to 9 a.m. That assumes an agricultural lifestyle, in which one rises at dawn, has first breakfast, cares for the animals, then comes in and has second breakfast.
I'll be celebrating with a big, virtual breakfast for you. Come on by to tell me about a favorite a.m. treat, or how Tolkien's fictional world has made an impact on your life.
When do you think "second breakfast" occurs? If you could pick one of Tolkien's cultures to live in, which would you choose?
