Beware the Ides of March

You have probably heard this phrase before.  But do you know where it comes from and what does it mean? In Roman times, the ides of March referred to March 15 on the Roman Calendar.  It was the date on which all debts were settled. There was also various celebrations throughout the day. And in 44BC, it was the date on which Julius Caesar was assassinated. But the phrase "Beware the Ides of March" comes from the play Julius Caesar, written by William Shakespeare.  Caesar meets a soothsayer who utters that phrase to him. Caesar ignores the warning and is later assassinated.
