It’s the first Yule since Bilbo left the Shire. Merry cannot bear to see Frodo so glum and now his older cousin is refusing to come celebrate Yule at Brandy Hall. Merry has come up with a plan that he’s not certain he’ll be able to carry out. He enlists Pippin’s help, but events take an odd turn and the outcome holds a few surprises for him as well as everyone else.
