Celebrate Pi Day on 3/14

Standard

What the heck is Pi Day?

Pi Day is an annual celebration commemorating the mathematical constant π (pi). Pi Day is observed on March 14 (or 3/14 in the month/day date format), since 3, 1, and 4 are the first three significant digits of π in decimal form. In 2009, the United States House of Representatives supported the designation of Pi Day.[2]

Pi Day has been observed in many ways, including eating pie, throwing pies and discussing the significance of the number π.[1] In our home, we celebrate Pi Day by eating pie (really, it’s a perfect reason to eat pie if you need justification), both savory and sweet.  Since, there really are no “rules” or traditions in my home except to eat pie I thought this year I would make a throwback to my childhood, homemade tamale pie in a cast iron skillet and individual skillet cherry pies–we will talk about pi in our geeky family banter during dinner and since 3/14 is also Einstein’s birthday anniversary we will toast him as well (we love us some geeky).  Nothing fancy just a fun opportunity to add a dash of celebration into your everyday life.
