Epical Pi Day forthcoming

For those of us who regularly dwell in algebraic hibernation, my husband noted this morning that this coming Pi Day, which I just discovered has been celebrated every March 14 since 2009 by Congressional proclamation, will have the mind-dazzling highlight of two additional decimal places: 3.1415.

This is certainly a most fortuitous year. At once every 100 years, Pi Day occurs less frequently than appearances of Halley’s comet.

We plan a quiet celebration at home.
