KSDK - There are some people who love Christmas. Others, Thanksgiving. Others still, the majesty that is Halloween. But there is one holiday that truly unites America, nay, the world: International Talk Like a Pirate Day.
The holiday, which has been running for more than a decade, encourages people all over the world to practice the art of the downright poetic dialect of pirate speak. For one day only, phrases like "Ahoy," "walk the plank" and "Davy Jones' locker" are not only socially permissible, but encouraged.
Krispy Kreme will celebrate the holiday Thursday by giving a free glazed donut to anyone who talks like a pirate. If you go the extra mile and dress like a pirate (and c'mon, who wouldn't if you have the chance), you'll nab a dozen free donuts.
Check out Pirate Day's website for a guide to pirate vocabulary, throw on that Jack Sparrow costume and have yourself a pirate-tastic day!
