In addition to Pi day (3/14), we're also in the middle of Square Root Day!
Square root day is held on the date that both the day and the month are both a square root of the last two digits of the year; so this year it’s March 3rd, 2009 (3/3/09). Celebrating is easy. When eating your all important three square meals don't forget your root vegetables like potatoes, turnips, beets, carrots, or parsnips; but remember to cut them quadrilaterally. Date squares, or any other square really, will also make an excellent dessert. After your meal have a try at square dancing, or if that’s not your cup of tea head to your local elementary school yard for a round of square ball. Although in truth the most perfect square root day activity is, of course, the magic square. Remember to get you fill though since the next time you can celebrate is April 4th 2016.
