Happy Pi Day!

Baking the traditional pi’s.

Today we celebrate all things pi. The first Pi Day was celebrated in 1989 at the San Francisco Exploratorium, whose staff celebrates most years by walking in a circle around a “Pi shrine” a little more than 3 times.  School children will learn the history of Pi.  How we wouldn’t have wheels without pi.

 

 

The youngest child has the honor of lighting the pi candles.

Traditional families will light the pi candles at 7:38 in the morning and then spend the day dividing twenty-two by seven.

In some countries folks celebrate Pi day with the Traditional Hot Dog Toss. During which hot dogs are throw on to a floor marked with evenly spaced parallel lines.

Why? Because the proportion of hot dogs that cross the lines when they fall works out to be approximately 1 over Pi!

The day comes to an end when celebrants form the pi formation and recite pi from memory. One by one, people will drop out of the formation until person who has memorized the most digits is declared the winner.

 

Pi echos from the hills as the Pi Formations join as one voice!
