Hey, it’s International Talk Like A Pirate Day!

ARRRRR!  Shiver me timbers!

This is one of the not-so-well-known holidays that I heard about that actually made me do a double take.  After I heard about this actual holiday, I thought how easy and fun it would be to show off a small portion (or even the entire thing) of your collection that could be tied to this holiday.

The first thing that comes to mind that you could show off is the clothes that a pirate could ware.  It could be a costume that came from the 1950’s, or even a pirate hat from a favorite local amusement park.  Another is to show off the actual clothes that were made during the time that a pirate sailed the open seas.

The next thing that you could show off is the pirate inspired toys that have been made.  It could be a remote controlled ship, or even a model ship that you have made.  Pulp magazines and books sporting articles and characters that have pirates in them could even be proudly shown off on this day.

This is definitely a holiday that you could have tons of fun with.  What kinds of holidays have you heard of that you could show off your collection?
