THE CHANGING OF THE YEAR.

Away down south, Gaffer Gamgee heard they now started the new year in March. Something to do with what Mr Frodo and his Sam did down there.

Folk in the Shire were slow to adopt such new-fangled ideas, however, so tonight they would be celebrating Yule as they always had. In Ham's opinion, it was the proper time to do so, as that was when the Sun returned. 'twas not proper to go changing it and in his eyes this new King had too high an opinion of himself.

Besides, Mr Frodo was never well enough to celebrate in March.
