12. Wife Appreciation Day - 18th September

It’s a day when men (or women) should take time out to show their wives affection and gratitude. Since wives give an excess of concern and devotion to their husbands, it is time to repay the favour on this annual holiday.

13. Talk Like A Pirate Day - 19th September

The holiday was started by Mark Summers and John Baur in June of 1995.

The idea originated as they were playing racquetball. One of them got injured and yelled “arrrr!” to which another one answered back using a pirate catchphrase. This spontaneous exchange in pirate lingo had made their game more fun and time seemed to fly by.

The two decided the official Talk Like a Pirate Day would be celebrated on September 19 because it was Summer’s ex-wife’s birthday and the only date he was able to remember!

For close to seven years, John, Mark, and their friend Brian Rhodes celebrated this among themselves, until they chanced upon Dave Barry’s email address in 2002 and decided to email him asking to share this day with the world and become the ‘official spokesperson’ for the event.

14. Pepperoni Pizza Day - 20th September

From the original and basic Neopolitan pizza of tomato and cheese, a wide variety of toppings are available today.

Of the choices, pepperoni remains a firm favourite, proven by the fact that the top-selling pizza at Domino’s last year was its Pepperoni Passion. Out of a total of 105 million pizzas sold in 2019, just under 10 million were Pepperoni Passion, and the amount of pepperoni used by the company was enough to go around the world more than once.

Each slice of a medium pizza with either sausage or pepperoni has about 10 to 30 more calories and one to four more grams of fat than a slice of cheese pizza.
