….and it just keeps going on, and on, and on! The number sequence of pi, , is quite intimidating, with over two million numbers and counting! Pi day, or March 14th (3/14), was first celebrated in 1988 by a Mr. Larry Shaw, a physicist, who decided to celebrate with staff and public marching around one of its circular spaces, then consuming fruit pies. The San Francisco Exploratorium where the celebration was held continues to hold Pi Day festivities.
