Nerdfighters

I would like to built a calendar of special days and holidays nerdfighters celebrate.
I don't mean just nerdfighter days like Hanko de Maio (but go ahead and post all of those), I also mean special days we celebrate, like Arbor Day or Book Day ( which is really hard to pinpoint, since I keep finding at least 3 different dates), internet holidays like Talk Like a Pirate day , Star Wars day or Towel day and any holidays you saw in a book/tv show/game or made up yourself and think it would be cool to celebrate, like Zagabees, the festival were you spend the whole day happy dancing to celebrate being alive.
So leave your holidays as a comment and if you like, also post the way you celebrate them.

pi day of course
Been researching this one and here is what wikipedia as to say on it:

"Pi Day and Pi Approximation Day are two unofficial holidays held to celebrate the mathematical constant π (pi). Pi Day is celebrated on March 14, or in the month/day date format as 3/14; since 3, 1 and 4 are the first three decimal digits of π. March 14 is also the birthday of Albert Einstein and the two events are sometimes celebrated together. Pi Approximation Day is held on July 22, or in the day/month date format as 22/7, which is an approximate value of π"

"There is a large variety of ways of celebrating Pi Day and most of them include eating pie and discussing the relevance of π. The first Pi Day celebration was held at the San Francisco Exploratorium in 1988, with staff and public marching around one of its circular spaces, then consuming fruit pies. The museum has since added pizza to its Pi Day menu. The founder of Pi Day was Larry Shaw, a now-retired physicist at the Exploratorium who still helps out with the celebrations."

Hum eating lots of pi pie, now there's a great way to celebrate a holiday!
