Happy Birthday to me…and a gift for you!

I prefer to give, not get, gifts on my birthday. In Tolkien’s Middle Earth, the hobbit celebrating her/his birthday would give everyone in the Shire gifts, instead of the other way around.

I really like this idea, because, for one thing, you don’t have to remember a million birthdays, and you don’t run the risk of forgetting someone’s special day. You just need to remember one date – your own birthday – and then go shopping for everyone else, thus knocking out the shopping for an entire year in just one day!

So in true Hobbit fashion, I would like to give you a gift on my birthday – a FREE MP3 DOWNLOAD of my song “Tolkien’s Fever” performed live with my band Mythica. Featuring fiddle, Irish whistle, and mandolin, it’s sure to get your little hobbit feet tappin’.

Happy Birthday to me 😉 and enjoy the music. xoxoxo Melissa
