International Talk Like a Pirate Day

International Talk Like a Pirate Day

International Talk Like a Pirate Day encourages people to greet friends not with “Hello, everyone!” but with “Ahoy, maties!” or “Ahoy, me hearties!” The day, and its observance, springs from a romanticized view of the Golden Age of Piracy. The day was born because, during a racquetball game between founders, one of them reacted to the pain with an outburst of “Aaarrr!”. So put your best wooden leg forward and talk like a pirate today!
