International Talk Like a Pirate Day

Arr! Ahoy! And Avast, ye land lubbers!*

I've said many times that, while spring is my favorite season in most regards, fall begins my favorite series of holidays - beginning with September 19, International Talk Like a Pirate Day!

Yesterday we celebrated all day long at the library, beginning with our preschool Playdate Picnic in the morning.

Ye could walk the plank,

or jump it!

Dress up in pirate garb,

Dig fer buried treasure,

Or try a number of crafts.

Of course, we had our pirate books on display,

along with some pirate trivia cards,

and some banned/challenged books - treasure indeed!

A hearty good time was had by all. And the corn cob from the treasure dig will eventually come out of the carpet. A great start to ye holidays!

*yes, we know: Pirates didn't really talk like that. Pirates were not good guys to emulate. There are still pirates today and they are Very Bad People. 
It's a fun day, guys: stop overthinking it.
