Happy Pi Day 2016 Quotes, Sayings, Images: Every year, Pie Day is celebrated on March 14 to mark the significance of mathematical constant π in mathematics and science. This day from the entire calendar has been chosen to honor because of the first three digits 3, 1, and four which will remain same each and every year. (check: Is Facebook Down?)
Last time, the date was 3/14/15. That was an important day for a hardcore mathematician as calculated that exact time to celebrate the occasion.
