From there, I discovered that something called the American Pie Council would have you believe that National Pie Day occurs on January 23rd. However, anyone who loves math (or at least learned how to calculate area of a circle) could tell you that just doesn't make sense. The United States House of Representatives agrees - they declared March 14th to be National Pi Day beginning in 2009. Much more sensible, if you ask me. Although, who am I to argue with two days that give me an excuse to eat delicious pie?
This year is, of course, the most epic pi day to occur in my lifetime. Today on 3/14/15 at 9:26:53, we'll have the first 9 decimal places of Pi represented. Pretty cool, don't you think? I really should have bought one of these t-shirts:
