    "Why are Hobbit doors round?"

    Because a lot of Hobbits are round.

    Because Pythagoras wasn't a Hobbit but Pi was.

    After some calculations, measurements and a lot of feasting, the Institute of House Building of the Shire decided that because some hobbits are as wide as they are tall, round doors would be the best solution.

    So they can roll in the pumpkins! (Filled with victuals, of course)

    I believe you've got the wrong link at the end of this sentence in the LOTRO Beacon issue #6.

    Hobbit doors are round so they can roll in to their hobbit holes after their outdoor picnics.

    In Hobbit construction, it's important to compensate for the weight of the earth on the structure. A round door? Well, it's simply more able to "bear the load".

    Obviously they are shaped like pies which hobbits just love so much!

    It is just so obvious that *round* is exactly the right shape for a door.

    "Why are hobbit doors round?"

    Of course Hobbit doors are round.
    Why? The question begs two answers.
    A Hobbit door is round so that friends may enter together.
    A Hobbit door is round so that friends with kegs come quicker.

    Well, they obviously like this song:

    So they made round doors. To go round and round.

    That's the Hobbit-Version from a Hole in one.

    For rolling. When too full to walk. Which could be often.

    Hobbit doors are round because the house is named a Hobbit-hole and a hole is normally round when you make a tunnel.
