In case you've been living under a rock and don't know why this is the best Pi day you will ever experience...
pi or π, is just a ratio. Take any circle or cylinder - your favorite can of soup? and measure around the circumference. Write that down. Now, measure across the circle - the diameter. Write that down. Now get out a calculator, if you're math averse or paper and pencil if math is your super-power. Take the first number and divide by the second and you should get π.
π = 3.14159265359.....
Something else magical? It goes on forever and never repeats.
So, today is special because the date is 3/14. (3.14 get it?)
But hold the phone because we get a March 14th every year... This year is the best one in the lifetime of pretty much everyone you know because the date is 3/14/15. (so do something awesome at 9:27) Cool right?
I admit it- I'm completely jealous of all those people who go to be at the truest pi day ever - 3/14/1592 at 6:54 AM.
Anyway, this year, I have decided to start a new twist on the tradition in which we not only eat pie on pi day, but we break our family rule of "no treats before lunch" and have pie for breakfast to forever commemorate our experiencing this pi day of our lives.
