Talk Like A Grizzled Prospector Day is an annual fun celebration observed on January 24th of every year. You are encouraged to become a grizzled old prospector with such a celebration Day on the calendar. Do you feel a little Hornswoggled? Don’t, dadburn, if you find no sense. Well, if you have understood what hornswoggled (got embarrassed) and dadburn (an all-purpose curse word) actually are, then you are probably into this celebration. The day would get completed without these words. Make sure you act like the grizzled prospector on this celebration Day.

“I wanted to be a great white hunter, a prospector for gold, or a slave trader. But then, when I was eight, my parents sent me to a boarding school in South Africa. It was the equivalent of a British public school with cold showers, beatings and rotten food. But what it also had was a library full of books.” – Wilbur Smith

History of Talk Like A Grizzled Prospector Day

Talk Like A Grizzled Prospector Day has been celebrated since the year 2010. Chris Jepsen is the founder of this fun, silly celebration Day. He created this Day with the intention of commemorating an important moment in California history in a fun way. On January 24, 1848, it was James Marshall who discovered gold while building the sawmill for John Sutter in Coloma, California. Chris has come with such a Day as to honor this event and the incredible work of Marshall that ultimately led to the Gold Rush. The Day roots in the popular celebration Day called “International Talk Like A Pirate Day.” It was also inspired by the Prospector’s day event. It is a day for all of us to remain as the grizzled prospector and use some old words while we talk to enjoy.
