Harkening back to one’s days in high school physics class, one may recall that Albert Einstein is lauded for his enormous contributions to theoretical physics and his scholarship regarding the mathematical constant π (pi), which can be approximated to 3.14.

March 14 is the month-day format for the constant π (pi), which includes 3, 1, and 4 - the first three significant digits of π (pi), the Greek symbol for 3.14. Coincidentally, it is also Albert Einstein’s birthday.
