    I thought Pie Day was March 14 (3.14)?

    Thanks for the note Marla – Yes, there is also “Pi Day” on March 14, that some people also tie into a Pie celebration. But in the U.S. there’s also National Pie Day on January 23rd!: http://www.nationaldaycalendar.com/national-pie-day-january-23/

    Either way, it’s a great excuse to eat more pie!
