Arrrrr! September 19th is known as International Talk Like A Pirate Day. Land lubbers are encouraged to pepper their conversations with words like “Arrrr,” “Matey,” “Ahoy,” and “Scallywag.”
International Talk Like A Pirate Day got its start in the 1995 when John Baur (Ol’ Chumbucket) and Mark Summers (Cap’n Slappy) made a piratical declaration that September 19th should be a day of celebrating all things pirate.
You can celebrate International Talk Like A Pirate Day with others at Krispy Kreme today. Pirates who come in to port talkin’ like they’ve sailed the seven seas will be rewarded with a free donut. Actual pirates in full pirate costume will get a free dozen donuts at Krispy Kreme! You could also take the wee ones to the Plano Public Library for pirate shenanigans like gathering booty (or treasure) and a pirate movie from 2PM to 3:30.
However you mark the day, celebrate will your mateys by talking like a pirate! Yo ho!
