No, I don't mean the delicious dessert that we all know and love...unless you are someone who doesn't like pie, and if that is the case then you either haven't found the right flavor (which is understandable because there are just so many different flavors and kinds) or you hate joy. You see, Pi Day is more than just about Pi it is also about pie. First off let's learn a little bit about Pi. Pi is a magical number that begins with the well known 3.14 and after that are a bunch of other numbers that endless go on. If you notice the first three numbers of Pi are 3, 1, and 4 you can clearly see that those numbers are today's date. Clever!

Today's holiday was founded by Physicist Larry Shaw in 1988. Larry Shaw was widely respected and even led a parade on Pi Day. He passed away on August 19, 2017. You can read his obituary and some of his accomplishments here. On a lighter note, the other part of Pi Day is pie. So, celebrate today's holiday by learning about Pi and enjoying some delicious pie.
