Pi Day is celebrated on March 14th around the world because the date is 3-14. (Not to be confused with “Pie Day,” which is celebrated in January.)
We think Pi is worthy of its own day, and we love that businesses celebrate it with deals on pizza and pie!
While you’re enjoying the Pi Day deals (and figuring out the circumference of any round foods in front of you), consider these fun facts Blaze Pizza sent us:
- Pi Day is celebrated each year on March 14, to commemorate the irrational number of 3.141592653
- In 2009 the US government recognized March 14 as National Pi Day
- Pi is defined as the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter. It’s an irrational number, meaning it cannot be written as a simple fraction
- March 14 is also Einstein’s birthday. He was born in Germany in 1879. (Happy birthday, Einstein!)
- The first organized Pi Day was in 1988 at the San Francisco Exploratorium. Physicist Larry Shaw had the idea to celebrate the day by marching around a circle and then eating some pies
Sounds good to us. Now on to the Pi Day deals!

One non-food related Pi Day “special”
NASA Pi Challenge
And while the rest of us are pretending to celebrate anything other than the circumference of the food going into our mouths, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration has actually come up with some mathematical problems for kids to solve for its Pi-in-the-Sky challenge again in 2020. It’s actually quite interesting, and geared toward K-12 students.
The math problems were posted on March 5, so you better get busy solving! The solutions will be posted on March 15.
Happy Pi Day!
