The Day That Goes on Forever

March 14 has been dubbed Pi Day.  That’s because March 14 is often written 3/14, and a decimal approximation of pi is 3.14.  But that’s only if you use decimals and our style of writing dates.  In some countries, it’s customary to list the date first followed by the month; for example, March 14 would be 14-3 in some places.  Consequently, some places celebrate Pi Approximation Day on July 22, because that date can be written as 22-7, and a fractional approximation of pi is 22/7. What percentage of the year occurs between Pi Day and Pi Approximation Day?
