Lightbulb April 17 & square root of 17.4 = 4.17

Most are aware that Americans write the date month-first or April 17, while the rest of the world(?) writes the date day-first: 17 April. Tomorrow's date, therefore, has a unique mathematical quality that I believe(?) it only shares with January 1 (1/1). You see, the square root of 17.4 is 4.17 (~4.1713307). I believe this is the only day of the year that has this square root aspect to it?

If you're not aware of it, Jesus the Nazarene was actually born on 17.4.6 BC. 'Coincidence'?
