It’s the day you’ve been preparing for since you were a kid. Grab your pirate hat and cutlass, and join your friends and family in talking like a pirate this September 19!
How Did Talk Like a Pirate Day Get Started?
Like most great things, this holiday started as an inside joke between friends. John Baur and Mark Summers’ were playing racquetball when one of them screamed “Aaarrr” in an outburst of pain. After that, it became a yearly tradition for them to talk like a pirate for a day. It became an official holiday in 2002 when they shared their practice with columnist, Dave Barry.
Tips For Celebrating Talk Like a Pirate Day
One great way to get you and your friends in the pirate spirit is with some tropical beverages! You’ll be talking like a seadog in no time after a couple of piña coladas, which you can make at home with our Margaritaville Frozen Concoction Maker.
Once you’ve mastered talking like a pirate by using terms like shiver me timbers, blimey, scallywag, and landlubber, it’s time to watch a film about your fellow pirates. Luckily, there’s a lot of great options!

Over the years, Disney has been known for making attractions based on their movies at their theme parks. Few attempts have been made so far to make movies based on their existing attractions however.
