IS it yud daled sivan? Or did you start using the goyish calendar?March 14, 2017 3:05 pm at 3:05 pm #1228729
Aren’t there shittas that Thanksgiving is muttar? (Even the shittas against is not because of the calendar; it’s because they determined Thanksgiving is based on religion, which is certainly inapplicable to Pi Day.)March 14, 2017 3:25 pm at 3:25 pm #1228730
“Aren’t there shittas that Thanksgiving is muttar?”
sure! There is no issuer with “celebrating” Pi day.
I just recall you on several occasions saying there was no significance to a secular date (I cant find where, regarding birthdays? regarding 9/11?)
thus I am surprised that today you celebrate based on the Goyish date.March 14, 2017 3:28 pm at 3:28 pm #1228731
Don’t we all (in chutz) use the goyishe calendar to determine when to start saying vsein tal umatar?March 14, 2017 3:34 pm at 3:34 pm #1228732
Lol absolutely no argument!
I have this intense feeling of Deja Vu of having used that argument to you!

The Solar year was created by Hashem. On the other hand, the idea of referring to March as the third month of the year can be problematic according to a Ramban in Parshas Bo which I learned many moons ago.
I don’t think there is any signifigance to the way the months are split up, so the fact that it’s the 14th day of the month is meaningless as far as I know (although not problematic the way the third month is). But I could be wrong.March 15, 2017 4:48 am at 4:48 am #1228739Lilmod UlelamaidParticipant
in any case, I don’t think it’s assur to make a joke about it.March 15, 2017 5:24 am at 5:24 am #1228740yehudayonaParticipant
LuL, March used to be the first month, which is why September, October, November, and December’s names are off by two.March 15, 2017 6:45 am at 6:45 am #1228741Avi KParticipant
To quote the late, great Yogi Berra, this is deja vu all over again (chochma b’goyim taamin). According to historians Yushki was actually born around 4 CE. Some say that there was no one Yushki but he is a composite of several preachers. In fact, at least one Yushki mentioned by Chazal (Sanhedrin 107b)could not have lived in the time of Pilate. Sanhedrin 67a mentions a Yushki who was Mary Magdalene’s son. Her husband was Pappas ben Yehuda (Gittin 90a) but there opinions that there was an earlier one than Rabbi Akiva’s cell mate.March 15, 2017 1:52 pm at 1:52 pm #1228742MenoParticipant
There shouldn’t even be a Pi Day.
Pi is an irrational number. Any calendar system you can think of would not have a date with an irrational number.March 15, 2017 2:46 pm at 2:46 pm #1228743YW Moderator-29 👨💻Moderator
That’s why we celebrate it with irrational behavior.March 15, 2017 5:17 pm at 5:17 pm #1228744MenoParticipant

Real pi day was March 14 1592

Appropriately, the ultimate PI day was shabbos (if you were in one of the country that joined Gregorian calendar 10 years before in 1582).
