Pi day is a special day this year, says

The Sydney Morning Herald

: 'This year, Pi Day falls on 3/14/15 – a sequence that won't occur for another century. Although some pi enthusiasts will stick to the traditional time, many will kick off celebrations at 9.27am, permitting them to indulge in a further two digits (3.1415927) of their beloved irrational number.'

Around the world, people are finding fun ways to celebrating, including baking some perfect Pi day pies!
