Officially Playing Pirates

Wikipedia is a great resource full of encyclopedic information at our fingertips.  As an open publication, it has all kinds of entries.

Today we find an extensive entry on September 19 - International Talk Like a Pirate Day.  This is a parodic holiday created by pirate enthusiasts who proclaimed this a holiday in 1995.  There are official acknowledgements of this occasion - the US states of Michigan and California are listed as having officially recognized it.  Krispy Kreme gies out free doughnuts to people who talk and/or dress like pirates on this day, and Google search and Facebook both have the option to choose "Pirate" as a language choice.
