Arrr your ready for Talk Like a Pirate Day? This fun international holiday was created by two friends back in 1995 - you can read more about that here. The story behind the holiday isn't super important, it really just comes down to "we've talked like pirates every Sept. 19, and we've encouraged our several friends to" (John Baur - co-founder of the holiday).
Now hundreds... thousands... (we'll never know!) of classrooms use this day to add some pirate-sized fun to their lessons.
If you don't do anything else on Talk Like a Pirate Day, you should definitely read a good pirate book!
