So yesterday, September 19th was International Talk Like a Pirate Day. I know this not because I looked it up or heard it on the news but because, for my husband, this is an important holiday.
He spends much of the day, in fact, talking like a pirate, singing like a pirate and spreading the Good News about how to celebrate Talk Like a Pirate Day.
I mostly roll my eyes. I have nothing against pirates – well, the seafaring kind anyway…the fictional seafaring kind – that is. All other types of pirates I am officially against.
But TLAPD is not the subject of my post – because it was yesterday. Today I want to talk about all the things we should be celebrating on September 20th. For those of us who still have some energy left after spending 24 hours walking the plank and saying ‘arrrrr’ – you may want to join in the festivities for such age old and time-honored celebrations as:
Chicken Dance Day
Farm Safety Day
Railroad Station Day
Punch Day [the beverage, not hand to hand combat]
So, put on a pair of safety goggles, go to the nearest train station, stick your thumbs in your armpits, lift a glass of punch and say [while your mouth is full preferably] Happy September 20th!
What unusual holidays do you celebrate?
