Slightly Steampunk: Tomorrow is Pi Day

Tomorrow is March 14th, or 3/14, making it Pi Day and therefore one my favorite geeky holiday right up there with Mole Day, Talk Like a Pirate Day, and Act Like a Time-Traveler Day. Pi is a mathematical constant whose value is the ratio of any Euclidean plane circle’s circumference to its diameter. It is approximately equal to 3.14159265.

To learn more about Pi Day and for tips on celebrating 3/14, visit the official Pi Day website. While you’re there, you can pick up all kinds of wonderfully geeky pi swag and send your friends some equally geeky Pi Day E-Cards. For some fun Pi Day activities, you could calculate pi by throwing frozen hot dogs or (considerably less random) watch the film, π. Here’s the trailer:

And to add some Steam to your Pi Day, consider making this amazingly tasty Victorian Meat Pie recipe. Yum! That’s a good reason to celebrate Pi Day even if you hate math.
