I am more of a literary person than a math person so I like March 15th better because, of course, that is the day to "beware the Ides of March". The ides initially referred to a Roman way of keeping dates that is rather complicated (click here to learn more). Originally the ides of March was just another date on the Roman calendar until the fateful day in 44 B.C. when Julius Caesar was assassinated. The "beware the Ides of March" saying was made famous by Shakespeare in his play, Julius Caesar:
Beware the ides of March.
What man is that?
A soothsayer bids you beware the ides of March.
Okay enough geekiness for one day, have a terrific Thursday!!
