The Ides of March…

What exactly is the Ides of March?

The Ides of March is a date in the Roman calendar, marking the 15th day of March. In the ancient Roman calendar, the Ides fell on the 15th day of March, May, July, and October, and the 13th day of other months.

It was an important day in Roman religious and political life. It was often marked at the Day of many religious observances and the settling of debts.

In case you need to pay someone today is a great day for that!

 

Why does this Date sound Familiar?

 

The Ides of March gained notoriety due to the assassination of Julius Caesar in 44 BCE. According to history, Caesar was stabbed to death by a group of senators led by Brutus and Cassius on the Ides of March, March 15th, 44 BCE.

This event marked a significant turning point in Roman history, leading to the downfall of the Roman Republic and the rise of the Roman Empire under figures like Caesar’s adopted heir, Octavian (later known as Augustus).

The phrase “Beware the Ides of March” has become famous through William Shakespeare’s play “Julius Caesar,” where a soothsayer warns Caesar of impending danger.

 

Maybe it is best if we all stay inside today!

Supporting Our Military Children

One thing that has been most important to me, as a military spouse, is figuring out how to best do this life while supporting our children with the changes and difficulties. When my children were very small, there were many times that my husband was away, and I had to parent my children alone.
