**National Pi’e’ Day [3.14]**

Pi day was originally observed March 14 because of the date being 3.14, a number very close to pi’s value. The holiday was created 1988 by Larry Shaw to celebrate the San Francisco “Exploratorium”. In recent years it’s become a day for making a pie as well as celebrating the ancient mathematical constant that relates the length a circle’s circumference to the perimeter of a square of the same area as the original circle. March 14 is also Albert Einstein’s birthday.

This is where the differences between the US and the UK really show up! For us it’s 14.3 and not 3.14 so the Pi day doesn’t have a place in our calendar (unless we add 1 more months!) which is rather sad as it’s a nice idea!!
