Talk Like A Pirate Day - 19 September

Ahoy, everyone!
September 19 is a day of talk like an international pirate (ITLAPD). It is a Parodic holiday created in 1995 by John Light (Chumbucket OL) and Mark Summers (Captain Sluffy) from Albany, Oregon, USA.
This holiday has also become the feast of members of the Flying Spaghetti Monster Church.
According to Summers, this holiday came into being as a result of a sports injury. During a tennis match between Summers and Light, one of them reacted to the pain with an outburst of "Aiarrrrr!", And so the idea was born. The game in which the injury occurred took place on June 6, 1995, but to make it easier for them to remember the date, they chose the date of the birthday of the former wife of Summers.
The inner joke between the two friends gained exposure when Bauer and Summers sent a letter telling of their invention to Dave Barry, a popular humorist in the United States in 2002, and he liked the idea and declared it an international holiday. Baur and Summers began to sell books and shirts related to this day and in a viral way, the holiday became a famous holiday all over the world. In 2006, Orr and Summers appeared on ABC's reality TV show "Wife Swap" as a family of pirates.

If you want to celebrate the day of talk like a pirate, get a few words in the pirate language:
Ahoy! - Hello
Aye! - Yes
Ai! - Yes Yes! (Eg "Ai Captain!" - "I'll do it immediately Captain!")
Arrr! - Yes enthusiastically
Arrrg! - A cry of pain
Avast! - stop and stop, enough, no way!
