Tolkien Reading Day is March 25: What should the RR do to celebrate? Can't Post

No, now listen, honestly people: we are the READING room. You know, "reading". Get it? And there is an actual verifiable Tolkien READING Day, as in the day the world stops everything and reads something by Tolkien (right? isn't that what happens in your part of the world???)!

So all right, I guess we don't have time to plan a MOOT or anything. Maybe we can teleconference....hmmm, I am trying to imagine my tech person not breaking into hysterical laughter when I ask him to set up a tele-room for me to conference so I can read Tolkien with my friends.

HAH, that will be a cold day in, ahem.

Well, maybe we can all pause at 12 noon in whatever time zone we're in and read the first chapter of Hobbit?

For serious, here is the link to the Tolkien Society's page about Tolkien Reading Day. I seriously cannot tell if this was only in 2003, or if this is supposed to be a yearly thing. Can someone who celebrates or has celebrated this day comment?
