Today, March 14,2015 is a math geeks holiday! It's Pi day! Pi is a value used to determine the area of a circle, which is 3.14159265359 in short form so the date 3/14 is Pi day annually and once every hundred years the 15 comes into play along with the time 9:26:53, so there is a lot of attention to today. It is known as an irrational number since there is no end point. Since Pi looks and sounds like the English word pie, part of the celebration is baking and eating pie. Its a day where math and food coincide. In fact if you look at 3.14 in a mirror, you get the word pie.
Which leads to the art of Pi.

So get another piece of pie and enjoy the day
