How would you describe the ides of March?

Brutus and Cassias got together to over throw Julius Caesar. The warning was to Beware the Ides of March. They stabbed Caesar to death on March 15th.

They had the song "Vehicle" back in the 1970s.

The Ides as simply the Roman name for the fifteenth of the month. We now associate it with the assassination of Julius Caesar and give it all kinds of fearsome connotations that the Romans wouldn't recognize at all.

I find the Feast of Lupercal (2/15) more congenial. I've always been partial to Pan-in-the-Abstract.

I would describe the Ides of March as when Julius Ceaser was killed. He dismissed his bodyguards, despite the fact that it was rumoured there was a plot to kill him...I respect his 'whatever' kind of attitude. He was one of the greatest generals ever. Although I am partial to Hannibal...

It's the day Julius Ceasar was betrayed and killed.

All I know is it is the date quoted in Shapespeare's "Julius Cesear" as the date Cesear was assisnated.
