Another 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!
