International Talk Like A Pirate Day, September 19th

September 18th, 2013 by theAddison

addisonAnother important holiday is sneaking up on us so heads up!  September 19th is International Talk Like A Pirate Day!

Some are under the impression that ITLPD is a local event due to Fernandina Beach’s rich history with pirates.  Wrong!  This event is celebrated world-wide.  No special costumes, no parrots or peg legs required.  All you need is the desire to talk like a pirate.  Start with the basics….  Arrr!

Here is an example of how mainstream this holiday has become.  Do you live near or drive by a Krispy Crème Donut Bakery?  If you go in to one of their bakeries to buy donuts on September 19th, International Talk Like A Pirate Day, and say Arrr! then you get a free donut.  If you go in dressed in full pirate regalia you get a free dozen donuts!  As Pete Millisakis used to say… “Free stuff is good”.

Shiver me timbers, don’t be a landlubber.  Talk like a pirate and enjoy yourselves, me hearties!
