Events which occurred on 15 February.

On Earth

In Arda

Note

In editions prior to the 50th Anniversary edition, the Tale of Years lists the two events of T.A. 3019 at February 14. Since it is clear from the narrative that the latter event occurred one day before departure on February 16th, this causes a problem in the chronology. Hammond and Scull decided to fix the Tale of Years so that the Mirror of Galadriel-sequence happened on February 15th. The return to life of Gandalf was also moved to today, for reasons unclear.
