Pi Day Around the World

The Internet Patrol - Patrolling the Internet for You

Today is Pi Day. “What is Pi Day?”, you may ask. And, indeed, you may wish that it were “Pie Day”, instead, because hey, that sounds pretty tasty. But it is, indeed, Pi Day – because today’s date is 3.14 (March 14th). And while you may think that Pi Day is something that we made up, we assure you that it isn’t. Lots of people observe Pi Day, each in their own unique way. And yes, many of them involve a pi pie, so you can still have your pi and eat it too.

Of course, there the professional pi pushers:

And we love this visual pun from George Takei:

Now, we did say this is Pi Day around the world, so our first picture of human pi (no ‘e’!) is from South Africa:

In France, noted author Daniel Tammet has created the first French celebration of Pi Day, “Premiere Journée de Pi 14 mars 2013” (to which, uh, 6 people are going, but still you have to give Tammet credit).

And finally, closer to home, here are two Pi Day dishes from our friend Shelley, and theHomeschoolMom.com is offering a free Pi Day unit studies unit for Pi Day!
