Happy Birthday to J. R. R. Tolkien



Happy Birthday to J. R. R. Tolkien; my idol, the man who changed my life and the South African who inspired me to write. Happy Birthday…



J. R. R. Tolkien was born on January 3, 1892 in Bloemfontein in the Orange Free State in South Africa to English parents. If he’d lived, today he would be 125 years old — almost as many years as The Old Took!
