september has an absence of great holidays. august, too. we haven’t had a decent holiday since july 4th here in the states! that’s too long. we need an extra holiday. talk like a pirate day is a great start, but i think it could bleed over into an extra pirate-themed halloween. it’s a great holiday. we get to wear costumes, and raid the neighborhood houses for nautical booty: gold chocolate coins and jolly ranchers in the shape of various gems and jewels.
imagine the parties! rum! swordfights! pickpocketing! water-balloon cannons!
we could call it Buccaneer-oween.
all in favor of extra halloween, say “ARGH!”
