But first a bit of history: Pi Day's origins can be traced back to 1989 in San Francisco. The day celebrates the mathematical constant Pi (π), which begins with the digits 3.14. You can learn more about Pi Day and watch videos about it here.

Pie and Pi Day have long been associated. After all, pi is the ratio of a circle's circumference to its diameter and pies are circular. Some take the association more seriously than others; that includes annual pie-eating and pie-baking contests.

The holiday Pi Day has been officially recognized by the U.S. government since 2009 and some companies have special deals today in honor of it, according to SlashFood. If you want to make your own pie for Pi Day, here's a handy list of recipes.
