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!
