Technically, wouldn't the last Pi Day have been 3/14/1592 (four
hundred and twenty years ago) , and the next one won't be until
3/14/15926  (thirteen thousand nine hundred and fourteen years from

But that's just in America.

If you're using the European date/month notation instead of the
American month/day notation, March 14 is 14/3 .  So in Europe "Pi Day"
won't be until the 3rd day of the Dodecember (which is what the 14th
month would be called if there was a 14th month).

Or July 22 ("22/7" in European date/month notation), since 22/7 is the
most common approximation of pi in fractional form.
