These two. I can't even!!!
Things you should know about these two hobbits:
Merry is a deep thinker and mischievous soul. He lives in Buckland which is over the hill and across the water. I think this is a pretty good/accurate description of Mr. Merry
Merry had the privilege of being in the service of King Theoden, Ruler of Rohan. Also, he rode to war with the Rohirrim and saved the Lady of Rohan's (Eowyn's) life. He was faithful to his lord, until the end; a true hobbit.
Pippin adores second breakfasts and is considered a 'carefree' hobbit. He lives in the shire and doesn't think twice about living anywhere else. (Again, an okay description of our fun-loving hobbit)
My favorite thing about these two is they are total opposites, but they're best friends; completely different, but loyal to each other. That's really what life is all about; learning how to interact with all sorts of different people in all kinds of environments. Merry and Pippin display this perfectly in their journey with The Fellowship. They are perfect representations of how we should act in our everyday lives.
Let's end with some of the last words King of Gondor (Aragorn) says regarding our small subjects:
"Though your people have had little fame in the legends of the great, they will now have more renown than any wide realms that are no more."
Hooray for hobbits.
