Pirate Art for Talk Like a Pirate Day!

 

Ahoy, Mateys!

September 19 is International Talk Like a Pirate Day. This storied holiday was first celebrated in 1995 by pals John Baur and Mark Summers (aka Ol’ Chumbucket and Cap’n Slappy). In the twenty years since then, this in-joke among friends has turned into a day of parties and dressing up all around the country.

In honor of this pirate-themed holiday, we are highlighting some of our favorite Pirate Art, along with a glossary that will help you and your kids talk like a pirate:

Avast!

This means stop what you're doing and pay attention (something that parents of toddlers find themselves repeating all day long)!

Grog

This is what pirates drink. Technically, it's rum diluted with water, but juice boxes work just as well.

Lubber

This is a person who stays on land. Or it might be the person who stays on the living-room floor while the rest of the family is aboard the pirate ship, er, couch.

Check out our Pirate Art for more ideas, like Jessica Flick's Ahoy On the Open Seas, which labels the parts of a pirate ship, or follow Donna Ingemanson's Secret Treasure Map, which leads you right to the booty (that's pirate-speak for treasure!).

Happy International Talk Like a Pirate Day, Mateys!
