Pi Day is celebrated each year on March 14th (3/14) around the world. Pi (Greek letter “π”) is the symbol used in mathematics to represent a constant – the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter – which is approximately 3.14159.
While you may celebrate by doing math problems, we prefer to celebrate by making some pie!
See below for Julie’s Peanut Butter Pie, a favorite at The Turner Agency.
