    IS it yud daled sivan? Or did you start using the goyish calendar?

    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.)

    “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.

    Don’t we all (in chutz) use the goyishe calendar to determine when to start saying vsein tal umatar?

    I think the calendar months system predates Christianity.

    Joseph, you are correct. The Julian calendar was introduced by Julius Caesar.

    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.

    in any case, I don’t think it’s assur to make a joke about it.

    LuL, March used to be the first month, which is why September, October, November, and December’s names are off by two.

    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.

    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.

    #1228743

    That’s why we celebrate it with irrational behavior.
