Money Talks News on MSN MoneyIt's the one day of the year when $3.14 can buy quite a bit. March 14, or 3/14, is National Pi Day, and businesses across the U.S. are hosting a variety of nerdy, Pi-themed promotions.

Pi is arguably the most widely known mathematical constant. The ratio of a circle's circumference to its diameter, Pi comes out to be 3.141592653 … . I have to end there because Pi goes on forever.


Self-proclaimed math geek? While 3/14 may be fun, you're probably even more excited for Pi Day 2015, a once-in-a-century thrill that will be over in the blink of an eye -- 3/14/15 9:26:53 a.m.


I am definitely better with words than math, but I can recite 3.141592 from memory. I'm lost after that. Any big Pi Day plans?
