Am so far behind in making comments and reading here! Again, thank you so much for this story--it filled the bill so well! In the end Frodo found that out of the mouths of babes....

A very wise person showed me that the things you like the most are the best things you can give to people you love, because if you love it, they will, too.

How wonderful! I like this very much.

Wisdom does not always require a long life to gain it. But like Frodo I doubt that Folco is aware of that, too ;-)

What a sweet story! I love it. :) Happy New Year!

Namarie, God bless, Antane :)

You should post this one as a separate story! It would be perfect for that.

I love how Folco helped Frodo decide what would be a perfect gift to give to Bilbo. Plus Bilbo also received all those other gifts from his other relatives and friends! =)

Are you going to post this on, too?

Oh, how delightful a game, and so appropriate for a Shire Yule!

Author Reply: When I started writing it, it was just going to be my usual Shire carol, but as I continued, I realized how fun a game it would make for the children to play, so I added an extra line to the chorus, and figured out the directions.

Don't look for it behind;
A new one we must find!

That is indeed a very nice game and a lot of fun!

I hope you have had a merry Christmas and I wish you a happy New Year!

Author Reply: Thanks! It seemed like it might be a good game for little hobbits!

I had a great Christmas, and am looking forward to the New Year.

The hobbity version is a much better way to celebrate - dear me, how depressing it must have been before just focusing on much you've screwed up. New Year's Eve is my favorite holiday because there is the excitement of a new year coming and all you can do it. I don't do anything to celebrate except in my heart and mind being excited and that is best.

Namarie, God bless, Antane :)

A very nice story. I'm quite sure the people of Gondor will love this new tradition.

I also like the newest carol. But my favourite still is the lighting of the Yule Log.

The day is short; the night is long.
Against the dark we sing this song--
Let our hearts be filled with light
And may the world again grow bright...
