On Tuesday, March 14, math enthusiasts celebrate Pi Day. It should be noted that this party has an exact time. The fact is that in the American system of writing dates (first the month, then the day), the date of March 14 – 3/14 – and the time 1:59:26, coincides with the first digits of the famous constant ( 3.1415926 …). By the way, the first to pay attention to this in 1987 was a physicist from San Francisco, Larry Shaw.
The next global holiday is International Rivers Day. Previously, it was called the International Day against dams, for rivers, water and life. It appeared in 1997.
