On Christmas Eve 2012, my family and I gathered for our unique Christmas tradition.
In the past there was Harry Potter Christmas, Narnia Christmas, Star Wars Christmas and now Lord of the Rings Christmas.
The younger generation is not the only one to get into the spirit of Middle Earth. From me to my mother to my sister-in-law to my 92 year old Granny. No one is immune from the fun of LOTR Christmas.
We take photos in front of our huge green screen and have even incorporated themed gingerbread construction.
It is a festive affair.
Take a look at the continuing tradition:
First a stop at Denny’s for their Hobbit inspired menu… in full costume, mind you.
I dressed as Legolas.
Many came as Hobbits.
My dad was Gandalf the Grey.
All the Hobbitses.
Balrog and Shelob living the villain life.
The dwarves Gloin and Gimli.
My little Granny as Bilbo Baggins.
And Grandma as Rosie Cotton.
My mom dressed as Pippin.
My brother as Gloin father of Gimli.
Then there was gingerbread and cookies:
The ‘happy place.’
Tower, eye of Sauron and the one… 3 rings.
The dwarves and Gandalf.
The eyebof Sauron.
Assorted LOTR shapes.
And the waterfalls of Rivendell.
Stay tuned for edited photos of everyone in true Middle Earth scenery. (We don’t play around!)
Also, next year will br Doctor Who and I will be a weeping angel.
