In all serious, I do not think there is much to worry about; Unless, of course, your name is Cesar and you fear being stabbed repetitively(23 times to be specific).
“The word Ides comes from the Latin word “idus”, a word that was used widely in the Roman calendar indicating the approximate day that was the middle of the month. The term ides was used for the 15th day of the months of March, May, July, and October, and the 13th day of the other months. The Ides of March was a festive day dedicated to the god Mars and a military parade was usually held.” -Wikipedia.com
Julius Cesar was the first play that I witnessed and, consequently, my favorite of the Shakespeare pieces. Unfortunately, it seemed very lack luster with a bunch 13 year olds reading the parts aloud when I was in school. I would strongly suggest seeing it at a play house or theatre as it is a very strong piece to watch.
Unfortunately, the attached photo is a statue of Augustus Cesar and not Julius. (Photo provided by BigStock)
