May 9th is “National Pirate Day” – maybe

So our friends over at the Pyracy Pub seem to have discovered that at one time, May 9th was celebrated to be National Pirate Day. Sadly, what internet results I could find only consisted of additional secondhand info, with no actual evidence. This of course shouldn’t be confused with Talk Like a Pirate Day, which as we all know is September 19th.

Whether you celebrate piracy this weekend or not… scratch that – you SHOULD be celebrating piracy this weekend, regardless of whether there’s any merit to this whole May 9th thing. So sayeth we.
