Pi Day for Google


Pi Day and Pi Approximation Day are two holidays held to celebrate the mathematical constant π (pi) (in the mm/dd date notation: 3/14); since 3, 1 and 4 are the first three digits of π. March 14 is also the birthday of Albert Einstein and the two events are sometimes celebrated together.

Now, that is something that I didn't know of. I only knew that Pi = 3.14 but I didn't know that it's associated with date!
