Today is Pi Day. That might sound weird to you, but it’s Pi, not Pie.

A Pi Pie, just in case you weren’t already confused!


However, eating Pies and throwing them is still a tradition for Pi Day. Pi Day was even officially recognized by the U.S. Government in 2009! Pi Day occurs on the 14th of March, making the holiday appear on 3/14, a very fitting date since Pi’s numbers start with 3.14. The symbol of Pi is π,an Ancient Greek letter. Pi is often used to help determine       the ratio of a circle’s circumference to it’s diameter. While math isn’t exactly my favorite subject, I wouldn’t mind celebrating the day with my favorite type of pie- pumpkin.

Whether it be for Pi or Pie, Pi Day could be considered proof that people are running out of Holidays to make! So on this Tuesday, celebrate Pi and all it has to offer.
