**[NOTE: Originally published in 2015 but updated for an extra kick today, March 14, 2017. Happy Pi Day, everyone!]**

On Saturday, March 14, 2015, we are going to celebrate what may very well be the biggest geek holiday of the year. Or the decade.

Pi Day 2015 is only several days away, and the excitement is building up. Whether you’ve got something planned or not, here are some fun things that will get you ready for Pi Day. If you’re planning a party, read this: Plan A Perfect Pi Day Party.

I need not explain why this is the ultimate Pi Day, right?

## Pi Day 2015 Song

Who says nerds can’t sing? YouTuber TheSingingNerd is so excited for the ultimate Pi Day, so he made his own song about it.

Here are the lyrics so you can sillily sing along with it.

*Everybody asks me why im so excited (so excited)
About the 14th, about the 14th of march
I get to be alive
On 3, 1 , 4, 1, 5
At 9:26 in the morning
But I’d better give you this warning
It’s not a national holiday
It’s an irrational holiday
And though its loved across the nation
Its only an approximation
It’s not a national holiday
But an irrational holiday*

Everybody asks me why im so pedantic (so pedantic)

About the 14th (about the 14th of march)

Yes, we can celebrate

With Belize on this special date

But for most outside of our border

They put dates in a different order

So it’s a national holiday

But an irrational holiday

*It’s a national holiday
And an irrational holiday*

## Mathematical Pi Song

Someone actually beat TheSingingNerd to making a song about this delicious number. Listen to the Mathematical Pi Song, and of course, here are the lyrics as well.

*A long, long time ago
Long before the Super Bowl
and things like lemonade
The Hellenic Republic was full of smarts
and a question resting on the Grecian hearts was
What is the circumference of a circle?
But they were set on rational numbers
and it ranks amongst their biggest blunders
they worked on it for years
and confirmed one of their biggest fears
I cant be certain if they cried
when irrationality was realized
but something deep within them died
they day, they discovered pi
they were thinking, pi, pi mathematical, pi
3.141592
6535897
93238462
64338327
Not rounded*
