(A very late) Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!

Everyone at The Evernight Report  would like to apologise for the quietness of this newspaper. The enslaved Hobbits that usually write these articles while I dictate have been away on holiday, returning to their families for a much needed break. I assure you I shall be blasting them out of cannons shortly as punishment.

Christmas has been wonderful this year. Aliramiel (co-leader of Stormborn) bought these gifts for me - the first is The Hobbit translated into Latin by Mark Walker: Hobbitus Ille  (which you can buy here if you want it on an eBook or here for the hardback edition). As someone who had to learn Latin for 3 years, I can tell you this is a sweet release from the basic textbook stories we were given.

The second is Letters from Father Christmas. This book shows the letters sent by Tolkien to his children, talking of the mischief caused by the Polar Bear and why the letters were late that year. You will have to read the book yourselves to find out.

For a birthday treat, Aliramiel and I watched The Hobbit: Battle of Five Armies. The review is on its way!

What did you receive this Christmas that was rather Tolkien-y? Comment below!
