Saturday, September 19th is Talk Like a Pirate Day! #PirateDay

International Talk Like A Pirate Day dates back decades to 1955. Ol' Chumbucket and Cap'n Slappy of Albany, Oregon decided each year, on September 19, we'd all celebrate pirates. Here are a few "pirate words" to work into your vocabulary today!
  • Ahoy: Say this instead of boring old "hello" or "hi."
  • Matey: Today, people aren't your "friends" or your "buddies" — they're your mateys!
  • Aye aye: Can be followed up by the word "captain," but this phrase is to be used to agree to something.
  • Arrr: Honestly, you can stick this one anywhere, including cheesy phrases like "Arrr, do you want fries with that?"
The U.S. states of Michigan and California have officially recognized the occasion. Krispy Kreme gives out free doughnuts to people who talk and/or dress like pirates on September 19. Long John Silver's has a similar promotion.

To celebrate Talk Like A Pirate Day, we are going to be reading Hailey's Pirate Adventure book from I See Me! This book has a photo of her that I sent in on the front page, along with her name throughout the book and the first letter of her first name, "H!" Tomorrow we will be dressing like pirates! Arrr!!!

I See Me sells many personalized children's books, lunch boxes, puzzles, coloring books, placemats, stickers, growth charts and more! Children love personalized products with their names on them. It makes them feel special. Seeing their names inside of books teaches them to enjoy books and to recognize their name.
