Famous Day: Talk Like a Pirate Day 2010

Do you know that today is a Talk Like a Pirate Day 2010?

“Talk Like a Pirate Day” is a periodic holiday famous during the 1995 by Mark Summers and John Baur of Portland, Oregon.

Annually, people around the globe celebrate this day. For me, I find it as a weird holiday. Talk Like a Pirate Day is famous around the globe every Sept 19th. Usually people around the world usually and must converse like a pirate or linguistic talk like pirate. They call it a "pirate accent". Instead of saying hello, since it is talk like a pirate day, they will say it “Ahoy, me hearty!” See, it’s really weird holiday.

Here are some of the pirate illusory pirate sayings (I don’t know how it pronounce and what does it mean):

-"Avast belay, yo ho, heave to,
-A-pirating we go
-Avast, there!"
- “Rrrr!"
-Polly wanna a cracker?
-Aye, aye, captain!!!
-Ahoy Matey!!!

… and many more.

Do you know how it started? Check out Talk Like a Pirate Day Background and History. Well, I cannot elaborate it well.

“Ahoy, me hearty!” meaning “hello” to you. Keep going everyone. God bless.
