# Mathematical holiday cookies at Starbucks

When I was in Starbucks the other day my eyes were drawn to the cookie display, for what did I see, but a row of cookies all decorated with $\pi$‘s! Upon closer inspection I discovered, to my disappointment, that it was not the Greek letter, but the red scarf of a polar bear.

(As Homer Simpson would say, “Mmmmmm,…. pi!”)
