International Talk Like a Pirate Day (ITLAPD, September ...

wikipedia - 20 Sep 2017
International Talk Like a Pirate Day (ITLAPD, September 19) is a parodic holiday created in 1995 by John Bauer (Ol' Chumbucket) and Mark Summers (Cap'n Slappy), of Albany, Oregon, U.S., who proclaimed September 19 each year as the day when everyone in the world should talk like a pirate. For example, an observer of this holiday would greet friends not with "Hello," but with "Ahoy, matey!" The holiday, and its observance, springs from a romanticized view of the Golden Age of Piracy.
