Like everyone at some point or another, I've often wondered "what happened on my birthday in The Lord of the Rings?" This, naturally, expanded into the idea that I should provide a simple way for everyone to find this information. Currently, I only have data from 9/20 to 3/2 loaded, but hopefully I'll get to the rest eventually. If you notice any errors, let me know!
