September 22, 2013: I’ll openly admit, I’m not familiar with The Lord of the Rings and all its affiliated works. I saw part of the first movie, and that’s all. So it was news to me that Hobbit Day celebrates the shared birthday of Bilbo Baggins and Frodo Baggins. (What I can tell you is this: Martin Freeman is one of my dreamy celebrity crushes.) Meanwhile, the Baggins boys share their birthday with the ice cream cone, invented on this day in 1903. So celebrate Ice Cream Cone Day while it’s still toasty out; this being the Autumnal Equinox, it’ll be hot chocolate time before we know it.
Edit: I totally did not intentionally put a smiley face on the ice cream. But now I can’t unsee it!
