What The Heck is Pi Day?
Being a Man of Husk, its safe to say I know my way around some good pies. My favorite by a long shot is good old southern pecan pie. It’s sweet, crunchy, and juicy in the middle. Unless you’re allergic to pecans, how could Pecan Pie NOT be your favorite?
Anyways, this isn’t a culinary blog so I won’t digress. If you’re looking for some great eats, check out The Bx Baker‘s blog by clicking here! Pi Day is typically celebrated on March 14th, and it’s a day where many celebrate not only Pi, but mathematics and sciences. Being the son of an Electrical Engineer/Teacher, I have a very soft spot in my heart for Mathematics (and Pi).
Pi Day is celebrated on March 14th (3/14) around the world. Pi (Greek letter “π”) is the symbol used in mathematics to represent a constant — the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter — which is approximately 3.14159.
