The Allure of Pirates

There is something special and alluring about pirates that captivates the imagination. Perhaps it's our hidden desire to be able to do whatever we want regardless of the consequences. Perhaps it's the idea of freedom out on the open ocean.

Whatever the reason, pirates are a popular and important part of pop culture. From Peter Pan's 'Captain Hook' and Jake and the Never Land Pirates to Johnny Depp's portrayal of 'Captain Jack Sparrow' in Pirates of the Caribbean, pirates are a key theme in many movies and cartoons. Pirates even have their own holiday - September 19th 'International Talk Like a Pirate Day'.

Have you ever wanted to be a pirate just for one day? Well Halloween is an excellent opportunity to live out your fantasy. You can dress up as a swashbuckler and host an amazing pirate themed Halloween party. Whether or not your guests come dressed as pirates is entirely up to you. Turn your living room into the prow of a mighty pirate ship and adventure awaits you. Play up the theme with ocean themed food and beverages.
