HandmadeMN Fun Friday Finds ~ Pi Day Friday

Pi is the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter, 3.14159265358979323846264... so being that today is 3/14, it is celebrated all around the world.

Folks often celebrate by incorporating pies into the day. This is my favorite way to celebrate. Strawberry, blueberry, pumpkin, key lime, banana crème, apple, boysenberry, raspberry...soooo many options. What's not to love?

What is your favorite way to commemorate this day of 3/14?
Perhaps you hold a competition to see who can recite pi to the highest decimal place at 1:59 today?
Maybe you take a moment or two to write a "pi-ku" (a haiku about pi)?
Or sing songs about pie? Or do fun math puzzles? Walk 3.14 miles?

Oooorrrr, how about this? Spend some time shopping your favorite HandmadeMN stores for great gifts to share with friends on this happy day! ;)  Here are some "pi"deas to get your shop on.
