International Talk Like A Pirate Day 

International Talk Like A Pirate Day is celebrated annually on September 19th. Avast ye maties, ya needn’t be a buccaneer or a privateer ta figger out that on this “hol e day” yer s’possed ta yammer like a pirate.
Back in ’95 a pair o’ landlubbers, named John Baur ‘n Mark Summers, were playin’ racquetball. Fer some reason they began natterin’ t’ each other like pirates. Aft they were finished, they came up wit’ th’ idea t’ make natterin’ like pirates an annual event. Fer no particular reason, they decided on September, 19th as th’ date fer thar annual celebration, ‘n Talk Like A Pirate Day was born.
Th’ international part came about when they wrote t’ syndicated columnist Dave Barry ‘n he featured it in his column (on September 8, 2002). Soon they were hearin’ from a bunch o’ scallywags from all o’er th’ world.

National Women’s Friendship Day 

National Women’s Friendship Day is celebrated annually on the third Sunday of September. As you might infer from its name, this holiday was created by women for women. The Kappa Delta Sorority created this holiday in 1999.
Kappa Delta Sorority, founded in 1897 in Farmville, Virginia, has over 180,000 members. The aim of this holiday is to promote special friendship among women.
There are many ways to celebrate National Women’s Friendship Day ladies. Get together with as many women friends as you can. Invite them to meet you for brunch. For your out-of-town friends, send an e-mail or call them.

National Wife Appreciation Day 

Another holiday today that celebrates women is National Wife Appreciation Day. Celebrated on the third Sunday of September, this holiday is an annual holiday that reminds husbands and partners to show their significant other just how much she means to you.
While we all may take each other for granted from time-to-time, it’s important to remind each other how much we value one another. Remind that special lady in your life how much you appreciate her.
You don’t need to spend an arm-and-a-leg to celebrate National Wife Appreciation Day. Simply remind her how much you care about her. Just a little token of your appreciation will do. Surprise her with dinner out, some chocolates, or some flowers.

National Butterscotch Pudding Day 

National Butterscotch Pudding Day is celebrated annually on September 19th. As you might suspect, this holiday celebrates butterscotch pudding – a renowned smooth, sweet, caramelly dessert.
Butterscotch is a type of confectionery whose primary ingredients are brown sugar and butter, although other ingredients such as corn syrup, cream, vanilla, and salt are supplementary ingredients in most recipes. According to a 1848 newspaper article, the original recipe for making Doncaster butterscotch is one pound of butter, one pound of sugar and a quarter of a pound of treacle – a mild mixture of molasses and corn syrup, boiled together.”
Butterscotch is similar to toffee except that it is heated to a higher temperature (270 to 289 °F, the soft-crack stage). The term butterscotch is also often used for the ‘flavor’ of brown sugar and butter together, even where actual confection butterscotch is not involved; for example butterscotch pudding, butterscotch ice cream topping, and butterscotch chips.
To celebrate National Butterscotch Pudding Day, simply enjoy some butterscotch pudding – either homemade or from a package mix. Here is one simple recipe for homemade butterscotch pudding.

Listed below are some other holidays celebrated on this date that deserve mention.
