3.14 Anko (Red Bean) Pie
Pi Day is annual celebration of the mathematical constant π (pi). It is officially observed on March 14, since 3.14 are the first three digits of the numerical value pi. Pi Day was first officially celebrated on a large scale in 1988 at the San Francisco Exploratorium. Since then, Pi Day has been celebrated by millions of students and math-lovers. The easiest way to celebrate is to eat pi-themed foods, of course, being Pie! This year we've made a special pie to commemorate this mathematical constant.
