Best March Holiday?

Which holiday is the best holiday in March? St. Patrick's Day. Hardly, people only do two things on St. Patrick's Day - get drunk and pretend to be Irish (I guess you could argue those really are the same thing). Maybe you think Easter is the best Holiday in March. You're wrong. It's usually not in March. See, Easter is held on the first Sunday after the first full moon after Spring Equinox. That's strange, I know. Here's a diagram to help you better understand the placement of Easter.

How Easter Works

Since St. Patrick's Day is lame and Easter isn't really a March holiday that means the best holiday is Pi Day. You may not have heard of Pi Day, if so you are a loser. It is held on March 14th (Einstein's Birthday) and is freaking amazing! We all know that Pi is an irrational number used as a symbol for the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter and that it looks like this: 3.1415926535897932384626433832795028841, but did you know that Pi has been calculated to 1 trillion digits? Did you know many people confuse it with pie?

How to celebrate Pi Day:

You're probably thinking:"How can I throw a fantastic Pi Day party this year?" I have some great tips.

  • Have your party at 1:59 so it's 3/14 1:59 (that's 3.14159!)
  • Make Pi Pie. Make a pie of your choice and top with food stuffs you have shaped into Pi.
  • Tell time in Pi! Here is a Pi clock I have fashioned for Pi Day.

  • Express your age in variants of Pi. Take your age and divide by Pi. For example, Elizabeth Taylor is 24.19 Pis old.
  • Watch the movie pi
  • Instead of running a 5k, run a Pi.
  • Search for any set of digits within Pi by using Pi Search
  • Check out for more pi crap.
