Agreed, we Brits don't use American order of days and months. But do you Yanks think we should celebrate 'e' month in Feb '71? And if not, why not?

Neither do we in India. But then there's no 14[sup]th[/sup] month in a year!

Yes, we can celebrate 'e' day on Jan 27[sup]th[/sup]!

Britain could have Pi day on 31/4 if it wanted.

It wanted to be normal.

I've never really heard of any sort of formal celebration for the day of the natural logarithm, but I'd assume that it'd be on the 27th of January, or maybe the 7th of February.
