I never did. We celebrate it as Two Pi Day here. You're most welcome
to lay claim to its invention, as long as you release it under an
acceptable Free license. Of course, you're legitimately able to put
non-commercial clauses in (after what happened to Christmas, I
wouldn't blame you), but we'd just have to invent our own day to
celebrate instead. The calendar perceives censorship as damage, and
routes around it...
