DUrin's Day +1 [In reply to] Can't Post

Since Tolkien didn't provide an exact date, the best we can say is that Smaug is killed in the evening of the second day of the Dwarves' new year. The Dwarven New Year fell on the first day of the last new crescent moon of Autumn. Durin's Day was a Dwarven New Year's day when both the sun and moon shone in the sky at the same time.

'There are older and fouler things than Orcs in the deep places of the world.' - Gandalf the Grey, The Fellowship of the Ring
