<p><span class="articleThumb floatright"><a href="javascript:openGalleryItemWindow('',740,560,4657);"><img src=""></a><span class="articleThumbCaption">J.R.R. Tolkien</span></span>Every year on January 3rd, <a href="" target="_blank">The Tolkien Society</a> reminds us to make a toast to The Professor... for indeed today is his birthday:</p><blockquote><p>On January 3rd Tolkien fans around the world are invited to raise a glass and toast the birthday of this much loved author at 21:00 (9 pm) your local time.

The toast is "The Professor".

For those unfamiliar with British toast-drinking ceremonies:

To make the Birthday Toast, you 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.
