Today is National Pi Day. Which is technically not a National Food Day at all, but a celebration of mathematics that references the constant Pi, often represented by the Greek letter π. π represents the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter. For non-math heads, that means its an infinite, non-repeating decimal — though it’s abbreviated to simply 3.14 in numerical form.
Now take a look at the calendar. That’s why we celebrate Pi day today.
Since math is a drag and getting hyped about it is probably on the bottom of your list of things to do, allow food to make the fake holiday fun. In a play on the pie/pi homophone, 3/14 is loaded with pizza deals — even more than National Pizza Day. This works out well because pizza is the one mathematical constant in our lives.
Here are all the best Pi Day food deals to get you fed and thinking about math.
