Talk Like a Pirate, Tweet Like a Pirate, Dress Like a Pirate, & Blog Like a Pirate too!

Pirate's Treasure CostumeDress Like a Pirate Day!Captain Jack Sparrow Costume

Yo Ho, Yo Ho! Today is International Talk Like a Pirate Day!

For those of you who might not have known, today is a day of particular importance. No, it is not Halloween (just yet), nor is it Christmas or Mother's Day. For some, this is a day that is far more important, and provides a wealth of more amusement and joy. It turns out that today is Talk Like a Pirate Day, and it is apparently celebrated throughout the world, at least among pirate aficionados and those in the know. Recently put into practice as far back as 2002 (although it was celebrated by a small circle of friends since 1995, when it was first established), this holiday seems to be on the rise to claim a spot next to Secretary's Day. So grab your pirate hats, hoist your Jolly Rogers, and may today be filled with the spirit of adventure for you!
More information can be found at: http://www.talklikeapirate.com/piratehome.html

Not only can ye have fun with friends a co-workers, but you can also have fun online with www.tweetlikeapirate.com and the many blogs and websites dedicated to this fun day!

Ahoy There, Matey!

Today be talk like a pirate day, ye scurvy dogs!

Celebrate by dressing up in pirate garb and swashbuckling the office.

Annie's Costumes has you covered for all your pirate costume needs.

Halloween Costume Contest Tips

How to Host the Perfect Halloween Costume Contest:

1. Announcement - let guests know that you will be having the contest on the invitations so they know to dress creatively.

2. Voting - set up a "voting booth" at the party so party-goers can choose their favorite costumes.

3. Categories - consider many categories so you can have many winners: Funniest, Most Unique, Scariest, Sexiest and Best Overall.

4. Prizes - Whether it's a homemade ribbon, a trophy or a gift basket, give your guests a little something for their efforts.

Good Luck Planning, and if you're looking for the winning costume visit Annie's Costumes!
