Happy Square Root Day — ‘Party like it’s 3-3-09’


From bookofjoe:

“Happy Square Root Day — ‘Party like it’s 3-3-09’


Which it is, all day today and into the night until 11:59 p.m., when we have to put away all our dedicated revelry stuff until the next such day, which happens to be April 4, 2016.

The last was on February 2, 2004, which coincided with Groundhog Day.

Here is my question: How is it that this is the first time I've ever heard of Square Root Day?

I mean, I've lived through a bunch of them, and for sure I was tuned in online when the last one happened, but I'd bet good money I've never ever read anything about the existence of such a day, which would've gotten my attention in a major way for sure what with my love of mathematics and quirky numerical concurrences.

No matter, it's here and so am I and that's good enough for me.

FunFact: Square Root Day occurs 9 times (3 squared) each century (100 years = 10 squared).
