September 22 is Hobbit Day, the mutual birthday of the two most notable hobbits in all of Middle Earth – Bilbo and Frodo Baggins.  In honor of this momentous occasion, we’re going to share with you some of our favorite videos from the Shire.

And here he is singing it live at a convention in 2009.

While not entirely relevant, there was also a band called Bilbo Baggins once upon a time. They sang a song called “Back Home.” Which, now that I think of it, is kind of Bilbo-ish.
