I wish it were National Pie Day, but instead it is National Pi Day. (According to http://www.holidayinsights.com/moreholidays/March/piday.htm, pi is “a mathematical concept and a number that never ends….at least no one has found the end yet. Often, we round it off to 3.14.”) If we could eat numbers, there would certainly be enough pi to go around.
If you don’t know what pi is, http://www.piday.org/learn-about-pi/ will shed some light.
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.

I thought I would end this post with one million digits of pi, but that is just too wacky. Instead, I’ll end with some uncounted, random digits of pi, courtesy of http://www.piday.org/million/
