I was aware of this and somehow subliminally, have donned a stripy pirate top this morning.

I scouted for a few how-to celebrate tips...

- Dress up like a swashbuckling pirate. Bonus points if you are able to carry a parrot or a monkey on your shoulder.

- Talk like a pirate the whole day long. Intersperse your speech with grunts and growls and slur your words. Call your friends โ€œmateyโ€ and intentionally use bad grammar.

- Host a pirate-themed party and ask your guests to come dressed as pirates.

- Watch movies and read books that feature pirates as central characters. Some examples include the Pirates of the Caribbean film series and Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson.

- Read more about the history of piracy and famous pirates.

Did You Know...

...that William Dampier, an English pirate, was responsible for introducing many words in the English language, still in use today? Some of these include caress, chopsticks, posse, barbecue, and snug. An amateur natural historian, he was also the first person in the world to circumnavigate the world thrice.

Ceebers That's very interesting ๐Ÿ‘

I do not have a parrot or a monkey to put on my shoulder โ˜น๏ธ I do have a singing mouse from Bagpuss, but I don't think that'll cut it.
