Pi Day: A Mathematical Celebration of Pizza
March 14th has become synonymous with marketing delicious round comfort foods for the mathematical turned food holiday known as Pi Day. On this day, pizzerias, bakeries and many other vendors of round baked goods offer deals to commemorate the mathematical constant: “pi” (?) or “pie”.
What’s the true meaning of Pi Day? Piday.org sums up the occasion: “Pi Day is celebrated on March 14th (3/14) around the world. Pi (Greek letter “?”) is the symbol used in mathematics to represent a constant — the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter — which is approximately 3.14159.”
As you can see, it’s an easy jump to pizza. They are circular (except the ones that are square, oblong, oval or rustic). And what’s a better representation of the mathematical constant than pizza?
For pizzerias, Pi Day is an opportunity to kick up pizza promotions on a typical Tuesday and grab some of the local limelight. Let your local media and influencers know what your pizzeria is doing to celebrate Pi Day.
