What is Pi Day and why do we celebrate the holiday? Each March 14, mathematicians, scientists, and math lovers all over the world have a good time on Pi Day, a commemoration of the mathematical constant pi. The date is written numerically as 3/14 matches the primary three digits of the infinite quantity: 3.14.

Pi has been calculated to be over 50 trillion digits beyond its decimal point. As an irrational and transcendental number, it will continue infinitely without repetition or pattern. While only a handful of digits are needed for typical calculations, pi’s infinite nature makes it a fun challenge to memorize and computationally calculate more and more digits.
