International Talk Like a Pirate Day today.
17 September 2018
All around the world, and even hundreds of miles above it, people celebrate International Talk Like a Pirate Day today.
International Talk Like a Pirate Day is the only holiday on the calendar that encourages people to babble like buccaneers for the sheer, anarchic fun of it. It's been celebrated by millions of people on all seven continents – yes, even on the International Space Station!
Staff, residents and families dressed up as pirates for the day and a themed afternoon of top-quality entertainment by Tony Algood, we danced the afternoon away before walking the plank.
