Millions “worldwide” do NOT celebrate Pi day today
USA Today Tech Section front page carries an article that declares in its first statement “millions worldwide celebrate Pi day today” (today being 3.14). That led me to the curiosity question – how many countries follow MDY format for dates? Who are these other “worldwide” folks? Want to take a guess? Only USA!!! Okay, I am discounting Belize!
More than 10 times the population of USA in this world write their dates in DMY format. That should mean they would celebrate July 22 (22/7) as Pi day.
China – with more than four times the population of USA – follows another format – YMD.
But then, we will come up with any excuse to eat some more pie!!! 🙂
