Other days of note:
The Ides of March fell on the mid point of each month and was supposed to correlate to the first full moon of the year. A seer told Julius Caesar his downfall would come no later than the Ides of March. It did; as he was murdered by at least 60 of his conspirators before the Ides went out. I imagine that makes the Ides from March 12th to March 28th this year.
March 5th Cinco de Marcho, initiating a 12 day drinking regimen for anyone wishing to "prepare the liver" for St. Pats
March 6th. The Day of the Dude encourages anyone who wants to honor The Big Lebowski by takin’er easy all day, man. I wonder if anyone will wear red.
