Pies for Pi Day


Anyone know what holiday is tomorrow (March 14)? It's one of my favorite holidays - Pi Day! Pi is a mathematical constant that represents the ratio of a circle's circumference to its diameter. It's been determined to over a trillion places without ending or repeating digits. You can learn more about pi and Pi day here.

The first few digits of pi are 3.14159265358, hence the reason 3/14 is Pi Day. The holiday is extra special this year since the next two digits in pi are '15' and tomorrow is 3/14/15! Only every hundred years does that happen. I've always been a bit of a math nerd and even kept a journal when I was little to try to see how many digits of pi I could calculate. Even if you aren't a math nerd like me, Pi Day is a great excuse to enjoy another one of my favorites - pie!
