Avast Me Hearties It’s Rosh Hashanah
For reasons best known to the buccaneering community, September 19, 2009, also known as Rosh Hashanah, was declared International Talk Like A Pirate Day by the Talk Like a Pirate Webpage. They celebrated the Jewish New Year in a variety of ways, but with fewer apples, pomegranates or black-eyed peas than usually eaten by my family.
So far there have been no announcements vis-a-vis September 28 (aka Yom Kippur), from either the Society for Acting Like a Gorilla or the Internet Consortium for Uncontrollable Mouth-Foaming. There are, though, still six full repenting days until the gates of Neilah close.
Each to their minhag I guess. Shiver me timbers and a shana tova.
