Math geeks have their own food holidays, too. Hence Pi Day, which is Thursday (3/14, get it? As in pi, which is an infinite number but starts 3.14159)? The holiday started in San Francisco in 1988, and while it’s not called National Pie Day, the House of Representatives gave its approval to the designation in 2009.
Pi is the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter, so it’s fitting that the other pies being celebrated on Pi Day are round, besides being homophones. And here are some pi/pie-related deals.
