3/14 is Pi Day!

March 14, 2013

Pi-Day

Nerds rejoice! 3/14 is Pi Day, an annual celebration commemorating the mathematical constant π (pi). Don’t care too much for math? You can still worship this day if you love pie (the kind that you eat), because one of the best ways to celebrate this holiday is to enjoy your favorite pie and anything else that’s round for that matter. Eat pancakes for breakfast, pizza for dinner, and pie for dessert!

Did you know? March 14 is also Albert Einstein’s birthday. He was born in 1879 and lived in Princeton, New Jersey for over twenty years. For that reason, the town of Princeton hosts numerous events to celebrate both Pi Day and Einstein’s birthday. It hosts pie eating and recitation contests, along with an annual Einstein look-alike contest!

Albert Einstein's Birthday and Pi Day

Make sure you join in on the celebrations this year. Make a pie and practice some real world math skills when you measure the ingredients and count how many slices you’ll devour! Take a look at some creative Pi Day concoctions, from fancy pies to pi-shaped pizza and more!
