Pi Day is coming!

Pi Day is coming and it’s time to start thinking about how you are going to celebrate.

Our household is filled with Mathies and Food-freaks, as you know, so Pi Day is a big deal. Though, I DO know others who are even MORE into it that we are. Or at least I pretend they are, so I’m not the irrational super-freak-pi-pie geek my brain keeps warning me I am. (See what I did there? math puns are also de rigueur for Pi Day. )

That self-deception firmly established and shared, it’s time to start planning the day. Will it start with a sweet tart or possibly a nice eggy quiche. Will lunch be a deep dish pizza pie, which IMHO is the most pie-like pizza available. Though for Pi Day, I really only require the circle not the filling.

Will dinner be shepherd’s pie with a nice apple pie to finish, or possibly tourtiere with sugar pie? (As a nod to my Acadian roots, very very tenuous roots, but I hold on tight.)

What are your plans for this Pi Day.

Some other, less food-based, ideas for celebrations include:

  • making bad math puns
  • walking around in circles
  • reciting pi to as many digits as you can remember, or as much time as you can invest, or until the end of Pi Day

And just in case you don’t know, Pi Day is always on March 14th.
