I have just heard that a cousin of mine is celebrating Pi Day today (March 14, or 03-14 to Americans) with, of course, pizza pie. I asked her husband if they celebrated it at 4 pm (1600 hours) – he said technically it should be at 1:59 in the morning, but they’re not following it that closely.

I had never heard of this until now, but it’s a charming idea. I don’t imagine it could exist here, where the day is placed before the month, since there is no April 31 – unless it is celebrated Jan. 3 at 4:15.

I asked whether they would have a Fibonnacci Day next January 12 at 3:58 – maybe they could serve Fibonnachos.
