Cap’n ChristianBlogR here. (don’t forget to roll the R’s) … RRRRRR!

September 19th is International Talk Like a Pirate Day. A fun holiday they set aside for people to Talk Like a Pirate. This holiday was created in 1995 by John Baur (Ol’ Chumbucket) and Mark Summers (Cap’n Slappy) of Albany, Oregon. Not to mention, this holiday started off a joke between two friends.1

Not only can you talk like a pirate, maybe you and the family can Dress up and have some fun, taking the family on an adventure. Get your pirate lingo and have a great time with the family. Plus share some Bible Stories of the Sea!

Be creative!

Free Booty

(or pirate talk for treasure)

Shiver my timbers ye seafearing mateys can land some free yummy booty. Looks like lunch or dinner and dessert!

Free Donut(s) at Krispy Kreme

Did you know that it’s Krispy Kreme usually either give you one free donuts if you talk like a pirate or will give you a dozen if your dressed like a pirate. I dressed up one year like a pirate it was on Wednesday. On that day, I believe I went to three or four different Krispy Kreme locations. I took the donuts I got and took them to the church for the snack for that day for Team Kid. The Pigeon Forge Location no longer honors this free donuts on this day, I have read. But the area Knoxville locations will.

Costume requirements for Krispy Kreme

Qualifying pirate costumes must include three pirate items. Such as an eye patch or bandana.2

Free Fish Or Chicken at Long John Silvers

Did you know that Long John Silvers is giving away free booty too. Come in and talk like a pirate and receive one free fish (or chicken plank). If you come in dressed like a pirate, receive a 2 piece fish basket (or a 2 piece chicken basket). According to LJS website, this is the criteria to be considered dressed up.

Be sure to follow the pirate code of dressin’, or walk the plank. To qualify as “dressed like a pirate”, you must wear at least 3 pirate items:3

  • Eye Patch
  • Bandana
  • Silver/Gold Hoop Earring
  • Knickers
  • Peg Leg
  • Pirate Hat
  • Pirate Shirt
  • Parrot on Shoulder (No real birds please!)
  • Skull & Crossbones/Medallion Necklace

Does anyone know other places offering free food or admission if you talk or dress up like a pirate on International Talk Like A Pirate Day?

I am sure with both places, it is based on availability and not all places will participate.

Bible Stories?

You can use this day to share any number of the Bible Stories of the Sea for a complete list of Sea related Bible stories featured on Courageous Christian Father.

You could also use this day for your family to dress up and hand out the Gospel Tracts or Gospel of Johns and witness to people.

The back of my newly designed costume, reads … This pirate is a follower of Jesus Christ.
Remember not all pirates are bad. You just may come across a saved pirate.

Other stuff?

I started my pirate costume in 2013, you can see the changes in my costume since then. I also dress for Trunk or Treats at church as well. Below is a picture of how my costume first looked.

Also if you have any Christian type buttons that I can have to add to my costume, please contact me. I would love to have some more Christian buttons to add to my costume.

Check out this Road Side Mascot I got to talk to one day, he was dressed up like a pirate.

Maybe you will want to make Pirate Pancakes.

Remember not all Pirates are evil. Some of us are Christians. The old saying Don’t judge a book by its cover. Remember God see’s us by our heart.

International Talk Like a Pirate Day is every year on September 19.
