Happy Pi Day – it is March 14 or 3/14. As you know, Pi is 3.14 and so on. Therefore, this is an important day for ‘pi people’:

And, March 14th also happens to be Albert Einstein’s birthday. He was born on March 14, 1879. Now, how cool is that!? – Impress a geek today; wish him / her a ‘Happy Pi Day’!
