Pi Day




A repeat post from 2009

Today, is Pi Day. You remember pi, 3.14... the number that is the relationship between the diameter and circumference of a circle? Yeah, you remember. Today, March 14 celebrates that constant. So seven things about Pi and Pi Day


1. The best part is you get to eat pie. On today's menu will be chicken pot pie and for dessert, I'm leaning towards a blueberry yogurt pie.


2. Pi has been around as long as dirt. It's been known for almost 4,000 years.


3. Pi Day also coincides with Albert Einstein's birthday. He would have been 130 years old today. Alles Gute zum Geburtstag, Herr Professor!


4. This holiday isn't a Hallmark holiday. You're not guilted into sending cards or gifts! You can just enjoy the day.


5. The symbol for pi, Π, was first used in 1706 by William Jones


6. Pi was first calculated by Archimedes


7. Pi Day was first celebrated in 1987 by Larry Shaw at the Exploratorium in San Francisco


So there you have it, Pi Day. Go celebrate. Walk around a circle, and eat some pie.

  5. Great minds think alike. Actually, I have to thank you for reminding me, because I forgot it last year.

    I almost bought a pie today, but changed my mind because it looked store made.

    1. Somehow, I missed your comment. I do apologize. Homemade is better but the store bought pies are good, too.
