Get Out! And Celebrate Pi Day

by Peggy Robin
Attention, all you math nerds who love irrational numbers - and all who love PIE: Your favorite day is fast approaching! It's almost PI DAY, which falls, of course, on 3.14 -- and if you want to be precise, arrives exactly at 1:59 and 26 seconds -- that's this coming Tuesday.   
What do you do to celebrate PI DAY?
You bake a pie, any type from pizza to pecan to pumpkin to decide! And you decorate the top with the Greek letter π. 

Like this: 

Some people celebrate Pi Day by putting a pie pan on their head as a hat, running outside on the afternoon of 3.14 at precisely 1;59 and 26 seconds, and they start shouting out all the digits of Pi as far as they've been able to memorize them. You can also sing the Pi song: (Memorize it and you'll know Pi to 100 digits!)
And now for what really makes a holiday festive! Presents! Well, the things below are not entirely free, but you will get some pretty good discounts!
