Pi Day, March 14, 2017


Next Tuesday, March 14,  is Pi Day.

Pi Day is a modern holiday commemorating the ancient mathematical constant π (pi), or approximately 3.14. Pi Day is celebrated each year on March 14.

Get it? March 14 = 3.14 =∏ . Heh.

As you will [no doubt!] recall, ∏ is the ratio of the circumference of a circle [the distance around] to its diameter [the distance across the middle]. [And yes, this *will* be on the test.] If you have trouble remembering, this catchy Pi rap may help.

Even though we haven’t decided exactly how we’re going to honor Pi Day here at the store, there will definitely be some kind of pie involved. And we will probably eat that pie. It may be a pizza-pie, it may be a fruit pie, or it could even be a custard pie. But, as Rory likes to say, if there is a reason to eat, we’ll do it at AllSpice.

(We’ve got plenty of pie recipes in the AllSpice recipe database).
