I’m baking pies because tomorrow is Pi Day, a day to celebrate the consistency and wonder of the circle.  Where would we be without circles?

The importance of pi has been recognized for 4000 years.  By 2000 B.C. the Babylonians and the Egyptians recognized the constant that every circle has the same ratio of circumference to diameter which is 3.14 and counting. By the start of the 20th century, about 500 digits of pi were known. With computation advances, thanks to computers, we now know more than the first six billion digits of pi.

So think 3.14 and go from there on March 14th.

Here are some images to delight, as you make or buy a pie to celebrate.
