Pi Day!

It is Pi Day! 

What is interesting about this day, especially 03.14.15?   Because 2015 holds the most accurate Pi Day in the ENTIRE 21st CENTURY.

3.141592653 = March 14, 2015. 9:26:53 AM

How Cool is that?
This will happen again in 2115! 

Pi Day is an annual celebration commemorating the mathematical constant π (pi). Pi Day is observed on March 14 (or 3/14 in the month/day date format), since 3, 1, and 4 are the first three significant digits of π in decimal form. In 2009, the United States House of Representatives supported the designation of Pi Day.[2]
Pi (π) is the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter. Pi is a constant number, meaning that for all circles of any size, Pi will be the same.
The diameter of a circle is the distance from edge to edge, measuring straight through the center. The circumference of a circle is the distance around.

How will you celebrate?  Eating Pie, of course!
