Ahoy, Me Hearties! It’s International Talk Like A Pirate Day!
Avast Ye, today is September the 19th, otherwise known as International Talk Like A Pirate Day.
So break out your hook, buccaneer hat, best pirate lingo and see here for the scoop on the holiday.
International Talk Like a Pirate Day isn’t one o’ those governmentally sanctioned holidays that shifts around to create a convenient three-day weekend. No, the date is ALWAYS Sept. 19 (Cap’n Slappy’s ex-wife’s birthday.) Now, occasionally Sept. 19 falls on a Sunday, and we recognize that may not meet everyone’s desire for an excuse to party. While a lot of fun can be had celebrating TLAPD in a church setting (The choir will now sing, “How Great Thou Aaarrrrt!”) we’re suggesting that those of a more secular bent consider celebrating Talk Like A Pirate Weekend.
