National Pi Day

Date When Celebrated : Always March 14

National Pi Day celebrates Pi, a mathematical concept and a number that never ends....at least no one  and no computer has found the end yet. Often, we round it off to 3.14. If you are a mathematician, this is your day. For National Pi Day is a celebration of mathematics. And, more specifically.... it celebrates "Pi".

Today is the birthday physicist Albert Einstein. Einstein was born on March 14, 1879. The date is also represented as 3.14. We strongly suspect some combination of these two facts is why someone created the day on March 14th. However, "Pi" was around long before Albert Einstein was born.

A Little Pi Day Trivia: On Pi Day in 2004, Daniel Tammet recited 22,514 to digits.


Origin of "National Pi Day":

The U.S. House of Representatives passed a non-binding resolution (HRES 224),[5] recognizing March 14, 2009 as National Pi Day.

The day was created by Larry Shaw in 1989. The holiday was originally celebrated at the San Francisco Exploratorium, where Shaw worked as a physicist.
