Ah, pi.  That mystical ratio that defines the relationship of a circle's circumference to its diameter.  That one, irrational constant that surrounds us, penetrates us, and binds the galaxy together.

Awesome, but too much work for me.

Also pie.  That magical pastry that defines the relationship of a man's heart to his stomach.  That one, perfectly rational constant that surrounds us, penetrates us, and binds the galaxy together.

Pi Day is celebrated on March 14th because pi is approximately 3.14 and March 14th is 3/14.  See what they did there?  True Pi-heads wait until 1:59 p.m. to start their Pi Day celebrations (because the next three digits of pi are 159), but I think that's entirely too long to wait for pie, myself.  When I was in high school, I made a Key Lime pie for pie day.  This year a request has been made for Blueberry, so that's what I'm gonna do.  Exciting stuff.

Here's another interesting Pi Day fact.  March 14th is the birthday of Albert Einstein!  I'm not sure how much pi factored into Einstein's work, but it's a cool coincidence nevertheless.  You know what else is a cool coincidence?  We have a card for Pi Day!  It's deliciously math!

Sweet! See what I did there?
