Always & Forever: Elijah Wood

Age of Aquarius Greetings

Thank You Elijah


Elijah,

I met you a couple of years ago in Sydney for the Supanova Comic Con. It was a magical time for me and my friends because we thought we would never have the chance to meet you. I basically grew up with you through your movies and television shows, and there you were, very sick but sticking it out for your fans. I thought to myself that if I were sick, I would be at home in bed nursing myself back to health. You have dedication that surpasses mortal beings. At least surpasses my common human abilities. I would just like to take a moment and thank you for all that you’ve given us and sending wishes that your special birthday will be one for the books!

**From, Bryan

Living to the Fullest


Today is yet another milestone for you, Mr. Elijah Wood. Today you turn 40 years old and we’re officially now living in a world where that has happened. For anyone 30 or older, this seems impossible. Where has the time gone so fast? One minute your voice is breaking and before you know it, gray hairs are cresting from parts of your body. But I see, Elijah, that you are accepting middle age with dignity. Like myself, you honor your age and relish in life experiences.

When I turned 40 some blah, blah years ago, I celebrated in grand style by taking a trip alone, meeting new people and experiencing a new culture. For me, that’s something I didn’t do often, but you, Elijah, do it practically every day. Celebrate your day by trying to do something you’ve always wanted to do. If it’s not accomplished on this day, plan to do it within the year. Teach a class, have a showing of your photographs or skydive from a perfectly good working airplane. You’ve done many things that’s personally rewarding, but take that extra step and go for it.

I hope this birthday is blessed by being with your family and friends, though, with the way things are in 2021, that will be harder to carry out. However, living in the 21st century and the advances in technology, being in the company of loved ones is not impossible.

Will things look differently to you tomorrow? Mostly likely not. It will be another day to set out and do amazing things, even if that means advancing to the next level on the video game of your choice.

A very Happy Birthday to you!

** From, Deenan

Birthday Wishes


Dearest Elijah Wood,

I don’t know if you’ll see this, but I hope you do. I love this site and can only hope you visit Always and Forever once in a while. You are super sweet, adorable, extremely talented and I would love to meet you one day. I’m wishing you the best birthday ever especially for your 40th with your family and your new son who is probably giving you what I wish. The best birthday ever!

**From, Haley Simmons

Time Capsule


40 years ago we had no knowledge of a little boy pushing his way into the world. We were witness to events like Ronald Reagan being sworn in as President of the U.S., the first Space Shuttle, Columbia, launching into the atmosphere, Sandra Day O’Connor becoming the first woman to serve on the U.S. Supreme Court, MTV airing for the first time on cable TV and Simon and Garfunkel performing live in Central Park. You are among some of the greatest events of 1981!

If I could put your characteristics in a time capsule for future generations to see, I’d first put in your talent. Then layer on your humility, followed by your graciousness. To add a little spice, I’d sprinkle in some of your quirkiness. On top, so it’s the first thing to be seen, is your kindness.

May you enjoy your birthday with many more to come!

**From, Rachael

The Number 39


Each and every 2 digit number that ends with a 9 is the sum of the multiple of the two digits plus the sum of the 2 digits.

(3×9) + (3+9) 27 + 12 = 39

This really doesn’t mean anything. I just like the way numbers works. In any case, have a happy birthday!

Pass Along All That is Good


Dear Elijah,

Like so many others, I’ve been a witness to your outstanding career, generosity and kindness and you surround yourself with people of the same demeanor. I can only imagine how difficult maintaining those qualities must be with so much unnecessary disdain and negative influences in our world today. When I see you with others, you naturally bring a smile to their faces and that’s a wonderful gift to have.

When I came to know that you were going to start a family, I was thrilled for you. I know you will pass all that is good inside you to your little one and will fill them with the same positive values you hold close. I wish you and your family much joy, laughter and love in the years to come. Wishing you the happiest of birthdays!

All my best,
** From, Taylor

Rich and Famous


Just the other day I read an article that people who were born between January 20 and February 18 are more likely to become rich and famous. And now, here we are on your birthday, this January 28, and it seems the studies are true, but not in the exact way as described in the writing. Elijah, your riches come from the people you keep around. A caring family and close friends are the kind of riches that don’t have a dollar amount.

As far as being famous, well, I know how you feel about fame. Sure, you’re a personality where many know your name and your work. But as it pertains to you, Elijah, your real fame stems from your humility, kindness and amiable demeanor. For some people to achieve this is a great task. However, you make it seem easy. Your fame flows deep from inside and that’s a quality which is hard to find in many.

Even if you were born in April, July or October, you would still be rich and famous. Hoping you have a wonderful birthday Elijah!

**From, Betsy

Happy Birthday Elijah!


I was born exactly 15 years and one day after you. You’re celebrating today, and I’ll celebrate my birthday tomorrow. While you’re knocking on the door of 40, I’m turning legal in many ways. Even with the gap between us, I feel like we’re one. Happy birthday fellow Aquarian!

**From, Dylan K.

Happy Birthday Mr. Invisible


It seems strange to wish Happy Birthday to a person I never met. As odd as that is, it feels like I know him. When I see him from afar, and by that I mean on TV or on the internet, his warm smile and calming voice makes my day’s troubles and problems less. In a world that’s becoming more unstable and unpredictable, I can rely on his bright, inquisitive eyes to put those worldly issues aside, if just for a little while. Reading vicariously through other people’s accounts of how considerate he is makes me very happy that someone like him is in the world. Elijah has a very special gift lacking in so many others. Elijah is a gift that should be treasured. I want to wish a very Happy Birthday to you, Elijah. God bless.

**From, Andie

My First Time


I met Elijah very briefly for the first time last year. As nervous as I was to ask for a photo, he was extremely kind and said “sure” with the friendliest tone and smile. I know he’s asked that question more times than can be counted but he put me at ease quickly, though admittedly, I was still nervous. I know he’s a big Hollywood actor, but he’s also a sweet, friendly man. I don’t know if he’ll ever read this, but I just want to say thank you again Elijah for being so kind. We need more like you! Happy Birthday!

**From, Kayla T.

AQUARIUSMAN

[uhkwair-e-es-man] n.

A friend of friends, an Aquarius man is the most social, gregarious and friendly out of all the zodiacs. He is the kind who would make friends wherever he goes and whomever he is with. Selfishness is not one of his personality traits and he does not like small-mindedness. Men born under this zodiac naturally have a penchant to get the details of everything going on around him. They are constantly analyzing and scrutinizing things and like to be in the loop all the time. Another prominent trait of an Aquarius man is his love for creativity. Aquarius men are bowled over and have a soft corner for innovativeness and ingenuity. He is talented, idealistic and humane, sticking strongly to his beliefs and guarding his ideals with his life. His mission is not to irritate anyone around him, but to set them free of their prejudice and superficial rules of behavior.

Just stating the facts! Happy Birthday Elijah!

**Long Time Fan

 

Happy Birthday to you,
Your eyes are so blue,
May your drinks all be free,
As you celebrate Thirty-three!

I wish you a very happy birthday Elijah!

**Love, Carrie


*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*




Even though I don’t actually know you, I feel as if I do. You give yourself to others so openly that when you speak to a group, it feels as if you’re speaking to someone individually. That’s such a rare and unique quality to posses and I wish you much and joy, happiness and love this coming year.

Happy Birthday Elijah!

**Deborah J.

Happy Birthday Elijah! I’ve enjoyed your work for many years and though I don’t closely follow your comings and goings, I’m always impressed by the way in which you’ve lived your life. I’ve never seen anyone in the status you hold to be so consistantly considerate and pleasant. There are many in Hollywood who lack in what you deem to be normal and that’s what makes you stand out from them. Elijah, you are an inspiration. Many happy days ahead of you. God Bless you!

**from, Erik


*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*



Your smile makes people feel at ease and welcome. Your eyes shine with knowledge and understanding. Your kindness makes those in your presence want to do better. You’re an everyday man who emits love, compassion, talent and enthusiasm. You once said you’re not a star but in the eyes of your fans, you are. Happy birthday!

Dear Elijah,

I don’t know if you will read this and this is my first time writing something like this. It’s hard to say what I want to without being sappy so I just want to wish you a very happy birthday.

**from, Verna

Dear Elijah,

From the moment Frodo appeared for the first time in The Fellowship of the Ring I knew I needed to find out more about who was portraying such an incredible character! Since then I have been a HUGE fan of yours. I mean, you are a very famous person with amazing talent, yet you are still so sweet and down to earth. You are a very inspirational person, Elijah. I hope you know how much of an impact you’ve made on other people just from being you!

I hope you have the most amazing birthday EVER!!! Happy 31!!

God bless you 🙂
Your forever fan,
Elsa

The Quinary

From the day we’re born, up until we reach our 21st year, seems every birthday in between is special. Our first month, second, tenth and into our eighth, twelfth and sixteenth year, we tend to celebrate like none in the past. But there comes the time when we’re not exactly juveniles any longer and the birthdays don’t seem as important. Who goes all out for their 23rd birthday? It’s the ones that occur every five years that have more meaning by some strange embedded human design.

This year marks for you Elijah, that distinct quinary moment. The first of many five year milestones that you will face and becoming thirty years old starts the cycle of personal accomplishments you’ll reminisce on and look forward to. Upon reaching this particular time, most will recount their thirty years and take note of what they have done, but dwell on what they have not done. With as many achievements that you have gained, there can’t be more to reach for can there? Absolutely! There are a multitude of five year birthday celebrations coming up and I trust and believe as each one passes, the contents of your years will be full of great rewards, personal gains and abounding love from within.

Happy 30th Birthday!

Best Wishes, Deenan

Dear Elijah,

From the time you made your first big break with that pencil, to the time you portrayed literature’s most selfless and beautiful hero, and times between and beyond, you’ve graced this world with your exceptional talent, generosity, and love. Here’s wishing you a truly happy 30th birthday, and a brand new year full of God’s wonderful blessings.

With fondness and love,
Margaret

A Special Year



Thought about Elijah’s 29th birthday and arrived at the conclusion that a birthday with a 9 at the end is often an underrated one, cause one year later is a big anniversary.

But the 9 at the end tells us that there is only one year in a decade which will be past tense soon and if you wanted to do some things in this, which are not done till now, then hurry up.

But many things can also be done when a 3 is in front and therefore it’s no cause for worry in this special year.

You can eat pizza when you are 30, 40, … 100. This also applies for reading books … but having a 2 in front is only still this year.

Therefore I wish you: Enjoy it, enjoy it, enjoy it.

**From, Grisu

Dear Elijah,

If you ever happen upon this site and these acts honoring your birthday, they are all sent with the warmest greetings, thoughts and creativity for a man who embodies attributes rarely seen in one person.

In just one score and eight, you exemplify the wisdom and knowledge of a soul far older. Not only this, but your very demeanor is what everyone should be and should want to be. You are a person who is caring, attentive and courteous; putting others needs before your own. Someone who is refined and cultivated; for many years in the spotlight hasn’t tarnished your disposition. You stand at the highest level of humility, knowing your place on this earth is no more important than anyone else. Most of all, I believe you see the good in all things and that is a quality many do not possess.

May you continue to live all the rest of your years in the same warmhearted and humane way.

Happy Birthday!
**Deenan

Why Am I An Elijaholic?


“Elijah Wood embodies a different sort of performer – one with integrity, wit, human gifts, humility, humanity, fun, good looks and the ability to survive. He has resisted the compulsions of the Hollywood scene and yet did not sacrifice his youthfulness, giving vent to his enthusiasm in ways that engulf him, sate him and still indulges and benefits others. He is gracious to other people, his fans, his family, his colleagues and is a consummate professional. And although there are other performing personae who might fit this bill, they are few and far between. In addition, he listens to his heart, to the world about him and his better nature. He is an example to young and old, and continues to provide examples in the form of his professional appearances both on and off the screen. It is easy to explain to anyone why I’m an Elijaholic, but since you asked . . . I’ll tell.
