Today is International Talk Like a Pirate Day.
How to Observe International Talk Like a Pirate Day
The day is celebrated by talking like a pirate. Before you start, you may want to find out your pirate name. “Aarrr!!” is probably the most famous pirate word or phrase, but there are many others. Not all pirates say the exact same phrases. For example, Dutch pirates speak differently than German pirates. If you don’t know how to say a phrase like a pirate would, try using a pirate translator. If you really want to get into the spirit of the day you could dress like a pirate. You could also spend the day reading or watching films about pirates. Read Treasure Island. Watch one of the Pirates of the Caribbean films, or Hook. Robert Newton is known for popularizing pirate speech, and you could watch some of his films: Treasure Island, Long John Silver, and Blackbeard the Pirate. In the past, Krispy Kreme Doughnuts has given away doughnuts on International Talk Like a Pirate day, but as of 2017 they no longer do. Additionally, Long John Silver’s has participated in the day, and in 2017 is giving away fried twinkies. Finally, you can change your Facebook language to Pirate.
