Happy Pi Day!  This isn't just any Pi Day- it's the Pi Day of the Century!  We're happy to celebrate March 14th (3.14) in the year '15 at 9:26 and 53 seconds.  That gives all math lovers the first 10 digits of pi: 3.141592653!  We won't have these same ten numbers until March 14th, 2115!

Just so you know, celebrating Pi Day began in the 1980's.  It also happens to be, coincidentally, on Albert Einstein’s birthday.  Enjoy the day!
