Like most everybody else in the geekosphere, my mind was very much on The Hobbit during this recent holiday season. And while decorating the Christmas tree (photos of the result are here), I noticed that we had a whole lot of dwarf ornaments, almost enough to make up for the company of 13 dwarves from The Hobbit. I even found a small ornament which looked very much like Martin Freeman’s interpretation of Bilbo Baggins. “All we’re missing now is Gandalf”, I thought.
Yesterday, while taking down the tree and packing away the ornaments, I came across a white bearded Santa in a long robe who looked very much like Gandalf indeed, so the adventuring party was now complete. So I took a photo of Christmas tree ornaments reenacting The Hobbit.
We’re still missing Gollum and Smaug among others – the closest thing to a dragon I have are a frog prince and Jimminy Cricket. As for Gollum… I really have no idea.
Still, next year I will try to put up my Hobbit adventuring party close to each other.
