Which brings up the question of why are people not commonly born on US holidays.
Seems faultless: if you have a pizza with radius “z” and thickness “a”, its volume is Pi(z*z)a.

The name planet comes from the Greek term πλανήτης, planētēs, meaning “wanderer”, as ancient astronomers noted how certain lights moved across the sky with the other stars. They called these objects asteres planetai, or wandering stars. Together they form the seven classical planets, as well as the names of the seven days of the week - Sun-day, Moon-day, Saturn-day, and in Latin, ‘Martis’ (Mars, Tuesday), ‘Mercurii’ (Wednesday), ‘Iovis’ (Jupiter, Thursday) and ‘Veneris’ (Venus, Friday).
The modern English days of the week were inherited from gods of the old Germanic Norse culture—Thursday = Thor (Jupiter), Friday = Frige (Venus). It can be correlated that the Norse gods were attributed to each Roman planets and its god, probably due to Roman influence rather than coincidentally by the naming of the planets.
