March 15th Ides of March

Today is the first day of the New Year, at least back during the Roman Empires in the days Julius Caesar rules. It also happens to be the day that the Roman Senate decided to rid itself of the dictator that was actually doing may of the right things for Rome but had made the Senate nearly useless. They stabbed Caesar until he died and threw Roman into it’s eventual downfall. That was 44 BC.

How to celebrate – Celebrate the New Year. Read about Julius Cesar. Visit Rome.
