# Math Lovers and Bakers, Rejoice! Today is Pi Day!

----------------

Hey Everyone, today is Pi day! For those not in the know, Pi day is celebrated by math enthusiasts (as well as bakers) all around the world each year on March 14th for the simple reason that Pi= 3.141592…, and 3.14 = March 14. Yeah, I know, this is kind of ridiculous, but hey, why not? “And why is the day celebrated by bakers as well?” I hear you say. Here’s why:

So in honor of the day, I give you this delicious-looking Pi pie. Enjoy!

Is there anyone among you guys who’s cooking a Pi pie in honor of the day? If you did, we’d love to see your creation! So why not upload the picture to imgur and share the link with us in the comments? (comment moderation is enabled, so don’t freak out if you don’t see your link appearing right away!)

Oh, and also, here’s the Pi song:

1. Sorry :P Still don’t understand why people would put the month first.

• AMelodic says:

The rules of American English are actually very simple.Everything must make as little sense as possible. That’s why we switched our dates around, made up our own measurement system, and recognize words like “Jeggings” as legitimate.

Actually with English as used in …England, the the date order makes perfect sense. Smallest to largest: Day – Month – Year. Just sayin.

3. Alex says:

The idea with the month first is it is how you say the date. Like “What day is it?” “It’s March 14th.” “What is your birthdate?” “It’s August 5th 1987.”

Anyway this is my pie http://i.imgur.com/9vC0f8E.jpg

In England we say “14th of March” and “My date of birth is the 5th of August 1987″ :)
