To celebrate Tolkien’s twelfthty-fifth (125th) birthday today,  3 January 2017, the Tolkien Society invites all of us Tolkien fans to raise a toast to the Professor.

Let everyone know what you’ll be drinking at the Tolkien Society (…) and share your pictures on social media using #TolkienBirthdayToast.

The Toast
After Bilbo left the Shire on his eleventy-first birthday in The Lord of the Rings, Frodo toasted his uncle’s birthday each year on 22 September.

J.R.R. Tolkien was born in Bloemfontein on 3 January 1892, and we invite you to celebrate the birthday of this much loved author by raising a glass at 9pm your local time.

The toast is simply:

The Professor!

All you need to do is stand, raise a glass of your choice of drink (not necessarily alcoholic), and say the words “The Professor” before taking a sip (or swig, if that’s more appropriate for your drink). Sit and enjoy the rest of your drink.

"A Professzorra!" ("The Professor!") :beer: 

By the way: Hungarian Tolkien Society organizes a Tolkien Day on 7th at AKG, Budapest, Hungary (it's a  Google Maps link) and if you happen to turn up in Budapest that day, we are really happy to see you! More (in Hungarian, sorry!) on www.
