    No mention of the equinox ??
    (I suppose that *occasionally* coincides with "Near Miss Day".)

    Cheers,

    Easter is my excuse to make leg of lamb which is getting more pricey every year.

    Actually, it is March 31st which is my mothers birthday. (yeah.. awww... ain't that sweet...etc..) Silly as it may sound, the older I get, the more I appreciate what that 84yo lady has done.

    Pi day gets my vote because Pi is such a consistent thing. No matter what day it falls on or what it is applied to, it remains constant, and while that is certainly not unique, it is so easily remembered (non-math guy here, yes... I recall trig and pythagorean, but not much else) and fairly easy to spell too.... :-)

    Additionally, it reminds me of the two Raspberry Pi's I play around with which are fantastic little Linux machines. And then there is the actual raspberry pie which my grandmother made, which is just a tiny bit harder to spell, but tasted very good.

    And thus, Pi and Mom win out the day for this old farm boy.....

    ...the majority is always wrong, and always the last to know about it...

    A solution is nothing more than a clearly stated problem...

    I'm still trying to figure out what today is called. The Ides of March, Brutus Day, post pi day (after 3.14 does come 15). So many choices.

    I never realized March had so many noteworthy days in it! I voted for St. Patrick's day but on second thought, I'd go with Easter, due to feasting.

    "Near Miss Day" since it's also my daughter's birthday. The big 30 this year!

    You forgot the 2nd Feast of St. Markdown's, on the day after Easter - half-price chocolate bunnies!

    The next one!

    Which is 334/5 times a greater favorite when the previous one was the 31st.

    Any including Bumblebees, Japanese quince, Primroses and Peach tree blossoms is a bee-tiful day.

    Well, last week, someone commented "see you on Tuesday". ". Why not Monday? Oh, we have "Easter Friday" and "Easter Monday" off. Nice long weekend. If only i was paid for those days off, i'd be even happier. :)
