If you’re new around here, you’re in for a treat! If you’re a regular, you know what’s coming and you’re still in for a treat because that is what π does . . . treat us all!

March 14th is π Day (3.14, get it?! Love it!?). Last year was the Ultimate π Day since Pi is 3.141592… and the date was 3.14.15. You might wonder, what’s the point this year? Forever we will live in the shadow of the ultimate.

Wrong! Pi is the gift that keeps on giving.

Well rounded pi

1. Like most of life, Pi is never the same two year in a row. Last year it might have been the Ultimate Pi day, but this year it is Well Rounded Pi. Get it!! 3.14159 rounds up to 3.1416. What’s the date this year? 3.14.16. Don’t worry that Pi’s best days are behind her. Which leads me to my next reason I love pi.

2. Pi can be whimsical and fun. This year a friend asked me why I talk about math so much. There is so much beauty and fun in math. But unfortunately that is the the main message most (at least Americans) believe. Pi Day offers us a chance to challenge this message in the best way! Jokes. Songs. Cartoons. Food. Come on, you try and throw a better party!

3. Not only is Pi different each year, so am I. In terms of Pi, I’ve had high’s and low’s this year. My friend Suzanne got me this awesome t-shirt! I love my Pi t-shirt collection. I really do.

The low, is a lost opportunity. I was scheduled to preach in July on Psalm 8’s relationship with Pi. If you’ve gotten to hear this sermon, you know I LOVE that sermon. Unfortunately, things happened at the church. So, this Pi Day is a small reminder of that loss.

For fun 

Happy Pi Day! How are you different this Pi Day from other years? What are you doing to celebrate?

    Amy, I had a co-worker for five years who I shared a classroom with and she celebrated Pi Day every year. I’ve finally met another wacky math-loving friend. Next we need to celebrate Fibonacci!

    Love these. Love these. Love these. I tried to pick a favorite, but I’ve never been good at that. If foot was held to fire, I’m just overwhelmed by the awesomeness that the first cartoon depicts (3.14 = PiE). It’s not particularly funny like the others but is just so WOW!
