Ah, pi (Π, π). The delicious 16th-letter of the Greek alphabet and the infamous, endless, irrational mathematical constant – also known as the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter, 3.14159.
Mar 14th is the annual observance of the 4000-year old constant, as the date “3/14” are the first three digits of pi, “3.14”. That leaves us with just one question that, unlike the question “how many digits are in pi?” actually has an answer: how does one celebrate Pi Day?
Presidents’ Day is a national holiday that has been federally observed on the third Monday in Feb by the United States since 1885. Schools and financial institutions across the country close their doors in honor of those who have served as the face of our nation.
New Year’s resolutions are a blessing and a curse. On one hand, they’re a wonderful starting point and a great way to get the masses motivated. On the other hand, it’s completely and utterly bogus to base our goals around an arbitrary date. In reality, you should always strive to better yourself – not just for a week or four during the first quarter of the year.
