Today, as of the time of the posting of this is March 14, which is Pi Day:

Yes, there's a holiday dedicated to the number π (pi), which is 3.1415926....

Similarly there is an E day, or Euler's Number Day, February 7, which celebrates the number e, or Euler's constant, which is 2.7182818.... :

There's even a Phi Day, or Golden Ratio Day which is June 16:

Phi is 0.618033988749894....

Most countries portray the date as DMY, America may be the only country to use MDY.
