Green Thumb’s Column: Pi Day


This is the one “holiday” that I really enjoy. As a math, pie, and pun lover, this day satisfies all of my requirements for a holiday. Education, dessert, and bad jokes. Not Silicon’s, though. But, I digress. Anyway, here’s some background on Pi Day. 3.14 is approximately the first three digits of pi. March 14th is 3/14. Therefore, we eat pie as a celebration, and a good excuse to eat pie. Some people believe that in three year, it will be Ultimate Pi Day (my affectionate term for it), because the date will be 3-14-15, otherwise known as 3.1415. Well, whatever you believe, just have fun eating pie, either today, or this weekend! Cheers!
