Ahoy, mateys! International Talk Like a Pirate Day is here! Started by John Baur (Ol' Chumbucket) and Mark Summers (Cap'n Slappy) since 1995, International Talk Like a Pirate Day is celebrated across the globe by pirate enthusiasts everywhere on September 19, every year.
Accord to the creater, 19th September each year is the day when everyone in the world should talk like a pirate. For example, an observer of this holiday would greet friends not with "Hello," but with "Ahoy, matey!" The holiday, and its observance, springs from a romanticized view of the Golden Age of Piracy.
International Talk Like A Pirate Day is celebrated in more than 40 countries worldwide. Besides talking like a pirate, some people dress in pirate costumes as well. And some communities work with organizations such as Childhood Cancer Support and Marie Curie Cancer Care to raise funds or increase awareness of cancer support and research.
