Happy Pi Day!
Pi Day is celebrated on March 14th (3/14) around the world. Pi (or the Greek letter “π”) is the symbol used in mathematics to represent a constant — the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter — which is approximately 3.14159. The holiday was founded in 1988 and has gained popularity over the last few decades as a widely celebrated event by all.
Pi Day is an annual opportunity to try and recite the infinite digits of Pi, or more importantly, eat pie.
