The Journey Begins in 2012

Tolkien fans get to return to Middle Earth and see where the LOTR saga began during the 2012 holiday season. The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey is scheduled to release on December 14th of this new year. Peter Jackson agreed to the role of directing this film. Key actors from the epic trilogy like Orlando Bloom, Elijah Wood, and Ian Mckellen also appear in this prequel. For those unfamiliar with The Hobbit, as mentioned this is the account of how the events of the Lord of the Rings series came to be.

As Bilbo Baggins accompanies Gandalf the Grey and a group of dwarves on a quest to reclaim a great treasure, he meets the creature Gollum and obtains his precious possession, a ring that possesses magnificent power. An Unexpected Journey is going to be the first of two installments of this epic genesis. The Hobbit: There and Back Again will pick up where Journey left off. Christmas season of 2013 is when the second film is due to release.

As fans anxiously await the most anticipated movie of 2012, TheHobbitMovie.com would be a great place to stay connected with progress and information on the movie! It’s chalk-full of blogs about publicity and offers behind-the-scenes photos and material. This site claims to be the number one Hobbit fan site on Facebook.

Songs of the Season

Hark! The herald angels sing,
Glory to the newborn King!
Sleeping in Heavenly peace on a silent night
in oh little town of Bethlehem
He has come to bring joy to the world!

Mary, did you know that the child that you deliver
Will soon deliver you?
Holy infant, so tender and mild
God and sinner reconcile

Joyful all ye nations rise,
Join the triumph of the skies,
with angelic host proclaim,
Go tell it on the mountain
Over the hills and everywhere,
That Jesus Christ is born.

These are the carols that we sing,
During Christmastime
These tunes are more than just holiday rhymes,
They tell of God’s love divine

Frosty and Rudolph and snow days are nice,
But they cannot compare to God’s sacrifice.
He sent His Son, Jesus, for the world’s sin to die
And for the gift of eternal life even Santa can’t supply

Christmas trees are fine to see,
But I prefer what the angels sing:
Peace on Earth and the first Noel,
Good will to men from the King of Israel.

This, this is Christ the King, whom shepherds guard and angels sing!
Salvation from sin will come from this Heavenly being!
Fullness of God in a small child
So God and sinners reconcile
