Beware the ides of march
Quote by William Shakespeare: “Beware the ides of March.”
Beware The Ides Of March (The Simpsons)
Beware the Ides of March. But Why?
The Ides of March , better known as March 15th, marks an inauspicious anniversary associated with treachery and ill fortune. But, how did a day that was once celebrated by the Romans become so heavily steeped in superstition? Instead, they would count forward or back from fixed calendar points—the Nones the 5 th or 7 th day depending on the month , the Ides 13 th or 15 th day , and the Kalends the first day of the next month. The ides marks the halfway point of the month—most likely alluding to the day of the full moon, although historically the ides also corresponded to when bills became payable. Of course, such an infamous day would fall on payday.
It was marked by several religious observances and was notable for the Romans as a deadline for settling debts.
