Talk Like A Pirate Day is coming Wednesday Sept 19,2012 and this year it is celebrating its 10th anniversary. Falling as it does midweek it’s a perfect opportunity to break things up and celebrate a bit. So start practicing your pirate parlez and dust off your pirate costume. Get together with some wenches and fellow bilge rats and go out for a bottle of rum. There is stuff happening worldwide and if there’s nothing in your area it’s not too late to organize something. Here is some info from the official Talk Like A Pirate Day site:
“We can hardly believe it, but 2012 marks the 10th anniversary of the worldwide celebration of International Talk Like A Pirate Day.
We may have come up with the idea, but it’s all of you who keep it going year after year, giving our crazy idea way more than its 15 minutes of fame.
We’re hoping for the best September 19th ever – and the fact that it falls midweek means you can celebrate the whole week long if you like!.
