Was Pi Day a thing before the internet made it big? I don’t remember ever celebrating Pi Day, but then I didn’t live a mainstream life so there is that. **My son has been waiting for Ultimate Pi Day ever since he was born.** I exaggerate since he didn’t even know it existed until a few years back, but if you aren’t in the math know, it’s apparently a very rare day.

How can you incorporate learning into a just for fun kind of special day? Let’s countdown with 5 days of ULTIMATE Pi Day.
