Today is March 15 - the legendary "Ides of March". Julius Caesar was warned: "beware the Ides of March". Read about the significance of the term "Ides" and how it relates to the Roman calendar: <http://www.infoplease.com/spot/ides1.html> Basically there's nothing particularly fateful about the date, it's just one of the three named reference dates in a month. The remaining dates in the months have their names derived by counting back from the reference dates.
