It was March 15th in the year 44 B.C. when Julius Caesar was assassinated- stabbed to death by a group of senators after being warned by a soothsayer days earlier with the now infamous phrase: "Beware the Ides of March." "Ides" simply denotes the middle of the month, but because of it's historical implications, the 15th of March now arrives with a "foreboding of doom."
Or, if you live near Caesar's hometown, it's time to throw on your toga and run through the streets!
Be safe, everyone!
