“Beware The Ides of March”

15 Mar

“The Ides of March are come.”

Vincenzo Camuccini, "Morte di Cesare", 1798,

“Ay, Caesar, but not gone.”

This ominous historical date has acquired a superstitious aura, akin to Friday the 13th.

The Ides of March marks the day of Julius Caesar’s assassination in 44 B.C., while coming to be known as a day to “beware.”

On the other hand, this line sums it up well:  “But bad things happen every day– we just notice them more on days of heightened superstition.”  (Judkis, WP Style Blog)  In this case, fear not!
