December 1 - 24 dancing dwarves
4. When in Aglarond -by Lady Masterblott
When in Aglarond…
"I'd never thought it'd be like that!," Pippin whispered into Merry's ear.
"Ssssh!" his cousin admonished him, listening courteously to the apparently endless pre-dinner-speech.
In one thing Pippin was right, he thought. Their visit of their old friend Gimli's home in Aglarond had been surprising indeed. And this included the so far unknown habit of dwarves to lose more time on words than on eating where a formal dinner was concerned.
But the hobbits' bafflement reached a so far unknown extent when after dinner, 24 dwarves performed a traditional booted tap-dance from Erebor on the banquet table, waving multi-coloured hoods.
