Did you know today was "Square Root Day". Have you ever heard of Square Root Day? The square root of 9 is 3 and today is March 3.
I love little things like this.
Square Root Day was actually started by a high school teacher in California on Sept 9, 1981 (9/9/81). It has since gained a lot of popularity. After today, the next time you'll get to celebrate will be April 4, 2016 (4/4/16).
However, if you don't want to wait to celebrate the next Square Root Day and you want another math day to celebrate, "Pi Day" is coming in just a few days, March 14 (3.14).
I would have loved to do something special on 7/7/07 a couple of years ago. The Olympics was on 8/8/08 this past year. What is scheduled for 9/9/09 this year? I'm sure someone's going to come up with something.
My Birthday is 7/11, like the convenience store. My mom is 10/4, like the CB radio call. My husband is 5/30, like Beer Thirty.
Do you have any interesting dates in your families?
