Magical Mama Amelia had her pirate calendar in order and let me know that tomorrow, September 19, is Talk Like a Pirate Day!
Were you aware that the 19th is International Talk Like A Pirate day?
The celebration was made up by a couple of men while playing tennis (their website explains it not all child-safe but interesting) and has since gone round the world.
The basic idea is that one should talk like a pirate for the entire day.
Anything else; dressing like a pirate, raising a black flag and sailing round the neighborhood, hunting for buried treasure or making treasure maps etc is entirely optional, but fun!
I thought I should let you know about this little bit of craziness (and the fact that two men acting on a whim were able to create an entire new festival) in case you wanted to let a little pirate magic into your life.
But of course! :) Thanks Amelia!
What fun! I’ve been wanting to take part ever since I missed it last year but I had completely forgotten about it all over again. 🙂
The web site also has this page just for the PG rated kid-friendly pirate stuff. There are lesson plans, kid pirate lingo, games, links, a pirate song and more.
Happy Saturday, Maties!
