I forgot today is π day until my kid told me.

What is Pi or π  day???

Pi Day is an annual celebration commemorating the mathematical constant  π (pi). Pi Day is observed on March 14 (or 3/14 in month/day, since 3, 1 and 4 are the three most significant digits  of π in the decimal form).

If you like math, of course you’re better than me, so I’m not going to talk much about it. But if you like to know more about the history, click the link underneath.
