Fibonacci Day was named after Leonardo Fibonacci, an Italian mathematician who discovered the natural sequence of numbers in nature in 1202. It’s a series of numbers which is the sum of the previous 2 numbers: 1,1,2,3,5,8,13,21,34,55,etc. It is found in hurricane patterns, DNA and the petals of some flowers.
Why celebrate it today? November 23 is 11/23, the first four numbers in the sequence.
