For the Eat, Drink and be Merry challenge – ‘Celebration’.

“Come and join the celebration,
It’s a very special day.
Come and share our jubilation,
There’s a new king crowned today!”
Merry was singing happily, walking with so much bounce in his step that he was almost dancing.
Pippin, resplendent in new clothes as were the other three hobbits, joined in with Merry’s infectious song.
Frodo smiled at his cousins with affectionate amusement, but then urged them to at least try to behave with the dignity befitting such an occasion.
Sam watched and listened. The others might be celebrating Strider becoming a king; he was content to celebrate Frodo smiling.
