I did quite a bit of cooking yesterday! In the morning, I prepared the items that will be in the photos, and which are also the name of this post. (Later in the afternoon, I made fried chicken, which will make for plenty of leftovers if I am crunched [pun not intended] for time this week.)
And yes, there is a reason that the post’s name is in Hebrew…
Here are the two pictures…
So, Sh’mini Atzeret is one of two days following סוכות (Sukkot) that bring the Jewish High Holiday season to a close. It is technically a separate holiday from סוכות, but is part of the season nonetheless.
This day falls on the 22nd day of תשרי (Tishri), which is the seventh month of the Hebrew calendar.
In Hebrew, the date is given as “day/month/year,” which means that today is 22/7.
Well, 22/7 is 3.142857142857 (with the decimal expansion repeating).
Notice something about those first three digits, though…?
Yep, I consider 22/7 of any calendar to be a viable pi day!
Today is the fifth day of the fourth round of O.C.T.O.B.E.R.
Memorial Stadium: 19 days.
Thanksgiving Day: 52 days.
Joint Mathematics Meetings: 93 days.
