National Pi Day is always observed worldwide on the 14th of March each year.

The Origin and Purpose of the National Pi Day:

The National Pi Day is an unsanctioned holiday that commemorates the mathematical number Pi which had been known globally for almost 4,000 years.  Its date of celebration corresponds to the first three digits of Pi, 3.14.  Pi is the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter.

This significant day, coinciding with Albert Einstein’s birthday, was founded by Larry Shaw in 1988.  Its first celebration was held at the San Francisco Exploratorium.  In 2009, this event was supported by the United States House of Representatives.

The National Pi Day activities:

The National Pi Day is celebrated online and offline through games; eating of pies and pizzas; joining math contests; and, creating Pi puns.  Group discussions on Pi are also common in schools on this day, as well as, singing of carols and songs about Pi.

Pi-related projects and antics are also developed on this unusual day.  During its first observance, people marched around a circular space.  Joining the annual Einstein look-alike contest at Princeton, New Jersey would also be fun.
