Hey Guys,

I just realized that it was Square Root Day yesterday and no one even mentioned it (unless I missed something). I figure I better take care of a post on Square Root Day, Seeing that it happened to be my B-day this year. So here is what it's all about, courtesy of Wikipedia:

"Square Root Day is an unofficial holiday celebrated on days when both the day of the month and the month are the square root of the last two digits of the year.[1] For example, the last Square Root Day was March 3, 2009 (3/3/09), and the next Square Root Day will be April 4, 2016 (4/4/16). The final Square Root Day of the century will occur on September 9, 2081. Square Root Days fall upon the same nine dates each century.

Ron Gordon, a Redwood City, California high school teacher, created the first Square Root Day for September 9, 1981 (9/9/81). Gordon remains the holiday's publicist, sending news releases to world media outlets.[2] Gordon's daughter set up a Facebook group where people can share how they were celebrating the day.[3]

One suggested way of celebrating the holiday is by eating square radishes, or other root vegetables cut into shapes with square cross sections (thus creating a "square root").[4]
