Happy Pi Day!

Here are Pig and Peacock we admit that we are geeks. And that's why we are excited that it's π Day! Woo Hoo!

And what pray tell does one do to celebrate π day? Well we are having a π Day sale! Enter code PiDay at checkout for 10% off your entire purchase! Perhaps you could start  your π Day shopping with some π Soap!



Etsy is full of cool handmade π items, check out our treasury below to see more great items!



Know what the best way to celebrate π day is? Eat actual Pie-apple, key lime, lemon meringue (my personal fave), any pie will do!

Another great thing you could do on π Day is actually learn about Pi. Ya know, because learning is awesome.
Here are some fast facts:

  • π is the most recognized mathematical constant in the world. Scholars often consider π the most important and intriguing number in all of mathematics.
  • We can never truly measure the circumference or the area of a circle because we can never truly know the value of pi. π is an irrational number, meaning its digits go on forever in a seemingly random sequence.
  • If the circumference of the earth were calculated using π rounded to only the ninth decimal place, an error of no more than one quarter of an inch in 25,000 miles would result.
  • Computing π is a stress test for a computer—a kind of “digital cardiogram.
