**Most of you read my blog for cultural awareness and fast breaking scientific events such as** Pi Day on March 14 . **T his year it’s even more special because it’s 3/14/15!!!!!**

** The Greek letter “π”** **(pronounced pi) 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**. **That’s why Pi Day is an annual international celebration.**

**Now pay attention. To celebrate you eat pie on 3/14/15 at exactly 9:26 am and again at 9:26 pm because “a sequential time occurs on 3/14/15 at 9:26:53.58979…** **following the sequence of pi to all digits.” Now THAT is something to celebrate.**

**There are NUMBEROUS* ways (over a trillion) to celebrate this most auspicious mathematical concept which you can find here:**How to Celebrate Pi Day .

**The best, and only way as far as I’m concerned, is to eat a pie.**

**Since pi is a Greek letter if you are cutting down on sugar you could eat Spanakopita (Greek spinach pie) instead.**

** *”Pi has been calculated to over one trillion digits beyond its decimal point. As an irrational and transcendental number, it will continue infinitely without repetition or pattern. While only a handful of digits are needed for typical calculations, Pi’s infinite nature makes it a fun challenge to memorize, and to computationally calculate more and more digits.” SEE!!! Culture and science can be fun!**

Let the non pi-ous eat cake (paraphrasing Marie Antoinette)
