Ahoy, buckos! This day be Talk Like a Pirate Day!
Started by two men, John Baur and Mark Summers, the first official International Talk Like A Pirate Day was September 19, 2002. Even so, Mr. Baur and Mr. Summers have been celebrating it since 1995! Regardless, this unique day is celebrated every year on September 19. Why? Because it’s fun!
Even though pirates historically were dirty, violent individuals, they sure talked funny! And that is how Talk Like a Pirate Day came to be. Here at the library, we are not pirates, and we don’t usually talk like them, but we sure do like pirate stories!
We have lots of different pirate books for you to check out, from Pirate vs. Pirate to There Was an Old Pirate Who Swallowed a Fish. If you want to know how to eat like a pirate, try A Pirate Cookbook. You probably don’t look much like a pirate but I Want to Be a Pirate will help you choose your pirate garb. Can’t speak Pirate? Pirate Pete’s Talk Like a Pirate will get you ready for Talk Like A Pirate Day! And if you need to know some pirate phrases right now, you can access the library’s Mango Languages database for Pirate Lessons!
However you decide to celebrate Talk Like a Pirate Day, we can help you achieve your full pirate potential! So gather ye gear, brush up on ye scurvy pirate speak, ‘n celebrate wit’ us!
