Pi day - March 14th

Updated on March 8, 2013

How to celebrate Pi Day

Once again, we are coming up on Pi Day, March 14th aka 3.14. The day when math geeks come out to play.

A wondrous time when math teachers everywhere tell their students to put down their calculators and pick up a plate to raise their forks in honor of this amazing pun - I mean number.

If you're lucky enough to be in the 1-2pm class, you can honor the perfect moment of 1:59:26 with a big bite of delicious pie.

Celebrating in style

Making, sharing and eating pie are not the only activities for this celebration.

There's the wearing of the traditional geek wear - a t-shirt with a clear pi joke or just a cool image with pi in it.

There are other choices for attire. For example, in an office where a t-shirt wouldn't pass the dress code, a pi tie would be acceptable.

All the Pi day games

There are a number of other festivities if t-shirts and pie just aren't quite enough to satisfy your appreciation of pi.

A popular game is "Are you smarter than a 5th grader?"

A good contest would be writing the best pi-ku poem. It is a wonderful way to express love and gratitude for pi as well to show off some creativity.

      Laughs, I never thought of that. Interestingly, my late father was born on March 14th and hated math:)

      Thank you for this great Hub!
