J.R.R. Tolkien - Conversation with Smaug (large).jpg
Smaug (birth unknown – Third Age 2941) was the greatest fire-breathing dragon of the Third Age. Details of his origin are unknown, but in T.A. 2770 he attacked the Lonely Mountain and the town of Dale. He claimed the treasure of the mountain for himself and forced Thrór, King under the Mountain, and his people into exile. Thorin's quest - with the help of his burglar Bilbo Baggins - to reclaim the treasure ended in success when Smaug was slain by Bard in T.A. 2941.

Sons of Finwe.jpg
Fëanor was the mightiest in skill of word and of hand, more learned than his brothers; his spirit burned as a flame. Fingolfin was the strongest, the most steadfast, and the most valiant. Finarfin was the fairest, and the most wise of heart.

J.R.R. Tolkien, Christopher Tolkien (ed.), The Silmarillion, "Quenta Silmarillion: Of Eldamar and the Princes of the Eldalië"

Months in the Shire Calendar
  1. Afteryule (January)
  2. Solmath (February)
  3. Rethe (March)
  4. Astron (April)
  5. Thrimidge (May)
  6. Forelithe (June)

Afteryule was the first month of the Shire calendar, thirty days immediately following the holiday of Yule (hence its name). It ran from modern 23 December to 21 January. This month was called Frery in Bree and in the Eastfarthing[1]
