In the past, March never felt like that remarkable of a month to me, but this year it seems that nearly every other day is a fake or real holiday or a date of some other significance. Every time I turn around, I’m made aware of something else to celebrate or observe. Though some notable March days have been around for centuries, I’m sure part of this increase is the recent prevalence of social media, where lesser known or obscure observances are introduced to a broader audience.

One of these days, I am going to actually make a pie on Pi Day. I wanted to this year, but we have some last-minute dinner plans with a friend in Arlington, so I won’t be cooking today. Maybe next year.

Instead, I leave you with the pecan pi(e) that Bart made especially for me on Thanksgiving after I asked him what was for dessert. Very clever, dear.

Happy Pi Day!
