On Wedding Anniversaries, Midsummer, and the Shire

Today is Audrey and my wedding anniversary! Yea, us!

It is also Midsummer, the Summer Solstice, for those that mark such things, and

By Shire Reckoning: it should be noted that today is:

  • Sterday, Midyear’s Day
  • On this day in 1419 SR, the wedding of King Elessar and Arwen.
  • On this day in 1420 SR, Frodo resigns the office of Mayor, and Will Whitfoot is restored.
  • On this day in 1482 SR, the death of Mistress Rose, the wife of Master Samwise Gamgee.
