[12 Days of Christmas] #3: A Silent Night with a King

Being the often forgetful person that I am, I forgot to schedule the last three posts to publish automatically. Oh, well. Here we go!

On the 3rd day before Christmas, Hazy (and Weatherly) recommend:

 BOOKThe Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King by J.R.R. Tolkien

return_of_the_king_coverMy favorite book in the trilogy. Mostly because Eowyn was awesome. And of course, good prevailed over evil.

Quick Quotes

  • “What do you fear, lady?” Aragorn asked.
    “A cage,” Éowyn said. “To stay behind bars, until use and old age accept them, and all chance of doing great deeds is gone beyond recall or desire.” 
  • “I wished to be loved by another,” Éowyn answered. “But I desire no man’s pity.”
  • “Do not throw your life away rashly or in bitterness.” – Gandalf [to Faramir]

SONG – “Silent Night” by Pentatonix

Beautiful arrangement. Seriously. My favorite part starts around the 1:57 mark. 🙂

Enjoy~! 🙂

I will try my best to start doing haiku posts again.  And as a token of my gratitude, here’s the long awaited conclusion to The Lord of the Rings haiku trilogy.

Faramir, to war
Comes home wounded, *almost* dead
Father thinks son’s dead

Funeral pyre built
To burn dad and son
Denethor, you’re nuts!
