    But there's no April 31. :\ Best you can do is 22/7.

    Awesome!

    Already set! With AM and PM there is twice the chance!

    Since the next digit after the 5 is a 9 won't the proper approximation be 3.1416? So won't the ultimate Pi moment come in 2016? I guess we could celebrate both years, why not :-p

    You know what you have to eat to celebrate, don't you. It better be a round one...

    I'm also in the UK. :(

    And people around here, guess what is the speciality about next day after this day celebration?

    Actually if you consider milliseconds etc between the 53 and 54th second there will be an instantaneous moment in time tomorrow at which we exactly equal pi. Instant pi? No thanks, give me a slice.

    I really have a headache trying to think what is going on with a PI day via what people discus here,

    I'm not flying out of here any time soon. So I will try again and again. Have a nice weekend everyone!

    We can celebrate e-day in July (2.7.) and January (27.1.), using the correct date format.
    2.7.18 is in three years.

    According to one website, as April 31 is purely imaginary, it is [itex]i[/itex]-day!

    You celebrate it at midnight between April 30 and May 1 (a public holiday in many countries!)?
