Math buffs celebrate Odd Day

REDWOOD CITY, Calif. Northern California teacher /*Ron Gordon*/ is a math buff who likes to celebrate numeric holidays. Gordon is offering a prize of $579 to people who celebrate /*Odd Day*/ with the most enthusiasm and get the most people involved in an Odd Celebration.

He says one of the best ways to celebrate Odd Day is to share the news with a friend. Other suggestions from Gordon include doing your odds 'n ends, give your friend a high-five, read the Wizard of Odds, watch The Odd Couple, find that missing odd sock, and beat the odds.

The Redwood City teacher says the rare occurrence really is reason to celebrate.

"The previous stretch of six dates like this started with 1/3/1905 – 13 months after the Wright Brothers' flight," said Gordon.

Gordon also celebrated Square Root Day on 3-3-09.
