Last week I shared that in high school, many of us had to read about Julius Caesar and the Ides of March. It was a day in the Roman calendar that corresponds to 15 March. It was marked by several religious observances and was notable for the Romans as a deadline for settling debts. The phrase, “Beware the Ides of March,” is the soothsayer's message to Julius Caesar, warning of Caesar’s death/assassination in 44 BC.
