Happy Pi Day!

Posted on March 14, 2014
Filed Under Geek Holidays | Leave a Comment

Pi Day is an unofficial holiday held to celebrate the mathematical constant π (pi). Pi Day is celebrated on March 14, or in the month/day date format as 3/14; since 3, 1 and 4 are the three most significant digits of π. March 14 is also the birthday of Albert Einstein so the two events are sometimes celebrated together.

(From: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pi_Day - Edited)

And this year, the whole month is Pi Month; 3.14 (March 2014).
