This Monday is National Pi Day.  No...not the pie that you bake in the oven with fruits or creams.  This would be the National Pi Day on March 14th that recognizes the mathematical constant π. Also known as PI, the first three and most recognized digits are 3.14. It is a mathematical constant, never-ending, the circumference to diameter ratio of a circle — you know the drill. But it is also the perfect excuse to indulge in pies of all sorts, thanks to the restaurants and bakeries who celebrate the fun holiday by offering deals, discounts and freebies. The day is celebrated by pi enthusiasts and pie lovers alike!
