January in The Lord of the Rings

The Fellowship enters Moria

The Fellowship arrives at the Walls of Moria, where they decide to leave Bill the Pony behind. Gandalf speaks "Friend" (Mellon) and the Doors to Moria open. As they enter, a great tentacled creature attacks, damaging the entrance and sealing them inside Moria. They begin their march to the far side and Frodo begins to hear Gollum following them.

These major characters were present

  • Frodo Baggins
  • Samwise Gamgee
  • Bilbo Baggins
  • Gandalf
  • Peregrin Took
  • Meriodic Brandybuck
  • Aragorn
  • Legolas
  • Gimili son of Gloin
  • Smeagol (Gollum)

In the calendar of the Shire, there are 12 months each with 30 days, so there will be no results for the 31st of any month, and February will have entries on the 29th and 30th.
