Pi Day is celebrated on March 14 around the world. It’s a day to celebrate the mathematical constant π (pi), which represents the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter, and is approximately 3.14159. During this fun and unique day, it’s customary to throw pie, make pie and — the best part — eat pie. Why, you may ask? Well, because it’s pie, and when you mix math and pie together, wonderful things happen. Plus, everyone loves a good pie, right? That’s why I’ve done some research and have found the best pies for throwing, making and eating. Take a look and choose the pie that will make your Pi Day scrumptious!
