It's nearly time.
Don't you worry. We're here to help you prepare.
Let us begin by going over the most important of the Pi-Einstein day traditions:
- The baking of the pies. Pi Day began with pies, and continues with pies to this day. We suggest holding pie bake-offs and/or eating contests.
- The wearing of the Pi. Either in t-shirt form or by something a little more subtle, like wearing a bracelet whose beads represent the numbers of Pi.
- Our favorite physicist's birthday. We usually celebrate this by putting candles on one of our pies and singing Happy Birthday in a charmingly off tune manner.
First: Mini pies are tastier pies. To help, we present you with The Personal Pie Factory. Remember to grease the wells before you put your pies in, and to carve a Pi symbol just so in the middle of each pie. It's the festive thing to do.
Second: A good recipe is key. We can't give away everything (how would we win the contests otherwise) but a couple of tips: A tablespoon of vodka in a pie crust will make it really flaky. Also, we love Chow for recipe ideas and inspiration.
Are you feeling the Pi Day spirit yet? It's still a week away, but we might have to start baking early. After all, one cannot have too much Pi (or pie).
