Ahoy, Me Hearties! This National Day sails away annually on September 19th.
Yo Ho Ho bilge rats! Today is the day where you might hear people saying, “Avast ye,” “Blow me down, Bucko,” “Grog” “Hornswaggle,” and many other pirate-like phrases, because it’s International Talk Like a Pirate Day.
HOW TO OBSERVE
Anchor’s away! Get your sea legs and a bag o’ dubloons to procure a barrel o’ rum and splice the mainbrace! You can join in anytime with your own version of Pirate-ese.
