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 about the history of Pi. How we wouldn’t have wheels without pi.
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 thrown 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 a person who has memorized the most digits is declared the winner.
Repeat after me…..
