International Talk Like a Pirate Day. Every September 19th. Why is Everyone is Talking Like Pirates? How it All Began. ARRRRRGGGHHH!

Many years ago I had heard on the radio someone joking about National Talk Like a Pirate Day. I laughed and though it was the most fun and goofiest idea I had heard. My co-worker's husband had heard the same radio show and had told her, so we spoke like pirates all day while we taught and had a blast. Over the next few years I heard others celebrating ot. My kids even came home from school talking like pirates in the last couple years. This year I noticed that the craze has really taken on and a lot of companies are offering freebies for those that coming in talking like a pirate. It has also become International Talk Like a Pirate Day! I decided to do some research and find out just how this all came about. These are the sites and info I found that you might want to read too. You can also find fun pirate events near you on their interactive map.
