“Pi Day is just a fake holiday created by math companies to sell more math”

“Pi Day is just a fake holiday created by math companies to sell more math” is a jocular saying that has been printed on many images. Pi Day is March 14th (3/14), just as Pi is “3.14.” No one is selling math, but it’s often said that other holidays such as Valentine’s Day and Mother’s Day were created by florists and greeting card companies.

Wikipedia: Pi
The number π ( /paɪ/; spelled out as “pi” ) is a mathematical constant, approximately equal to 3.14159. It is defined in Euclidean geometry[a] as the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter, and also has various equivalent definitions. It appears in many formulas in all areas of mathematics and physics.

In the United States, Pi Day falls on 14 March (written 3/14 in the US style), and is popular among students.
