To all my fel­low nerds out there, Hap­py Pi Day!!

Today marks the cel­e­bra­tion of pi (3.141592653)!  Yay, pi!!!  Some peo­ple might be ask­ing why pi has its own hol­i­day?  Well, pie appears in math­e­mat­i­cal for­mu­las all over the place.  You can find it woven into the fab­ric of the Uni­verse or in the shape of an actu­al pie. One physi­cist decid­ed that its so spe­cial it deserves its own hol­i­day and we agree!!

Our famous sci­en­tists fin­ger pup­pets-many of the research con­duct­ed by this crew would not have been pos­si­ble with­out Pi.

Pi Day serves as an awe­some day to make numer­ous math and food relat­ed puns!  Impress your friends by try­ing to say as many puns as pos­si­ble or show off your math knowl­edge by recit­ing the num­ber of dig­its of Pi you know.

Pi Day Fun Fact:  Pi Day offi­cial­ly starts at 1:59 PM on March 14th.  The com­bined date and time results in 3.14159.

March 14th is known as the birth­day of Albert Ein­stein (physics god).  Ein­stein is known for his influ­en­tial work on rel­a­tiv­i­ty and his famous equa­tion, E=mc2. In 1921, Ein­stein was award­ed the Nobel Prize in physics in recog­ni­tion for his work in the sci­ences.  Ein­stein was a pas­sion­ate music lover and once said “If I were not a physi­cist, I would prob­a­bly be a musi­cian.  I often think in music.”

Cel­e­brate Einstein’s birth­day by pur­chas­ing our col­lec­tion of Ein­stein mer­chan­dise.  Try pur­chas­ing our Ein­stein inspired mug so you can pon­der physics every morn­ing.  Then pur­chase our pun­ny mints to fresh­en your breath in a nerdy way!

Math not your thing?  No wor­ries!  Cel­e­brate Pi Day by cre­at­ing a scrump­tious pie treat?   While mak­ing the pie, pay close atten­tion to the geom­e­try of the dessert. At Kards Unlim­it­ed, we sell a vari­ety of cook­books with fan­tas­tic pie recipes.  I will be cre­at­ing a pie today and detail­ing my jour­ney in this week’s spe­cial edi­tion of Bak­ing with Kards!  Also, pick up KU’s Pi Day themed card to send to all of your nerdy/pie enthu­si­as­tic friends!

Math­e­mat­ics is a won­der­ful tool that helps us explore the phys­i­cal world around us.  I invite you to reflect on all objects cir­cu­lar and the num­ber Pi today.  Or you can just send this awe­some Pi Day Pun meme to all of your friends.
