Today just happens to be a very exciting day. For the first time ever, it’s going to be March 14, 2015; also known as pi day.
What is pi day, you ask?
Pi Day is celebrated on March 14, (3/14) around the world. Pi (Greek letter “π”) is the symbol used in mathematics to represent a constant — the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter — which is approximately 3.14159.
Oddly enough, this year is 3/14/15, with the numbers 926 following at 9:26 a.m. and 9:26 p.m.
This will be the only time in our lives that we will be seeing this, so let’s celebrate!
