3 Jan 1892 — In honor of J.R.R. Tolkien's birthday, leave your toasts to him
This In 'n Out allows all interested visitors to Writing.com a place to raise a Toast to J.R.R. Tolkien. Let us know what is in your glass (of course, it needn't be an alcoholic drink), and begin with the words: "The Professor" before taking a sip. Stay awhile, or join others in the "The Lothlorien Forum" and enjoy what you find as you drink.|
The standard toast is: "The Professor"
