Ides Of March:Is March 15th Bad Luck?

March 15th is a commemorable day because of an event that took place around 44 B.C on  Rome.Some people may not be aware of this but others associate this day with bad luck,misfortunes and superstitions.

The History of Ides Of March

Many years ago, Roman leader Julius Caesar was warned by an all-knowing, albeit anonymous, soothsayer.  
The wise man warned him he was in imminent danger and to “Beware the Ides of March,”
a day in the Roman calendar that marked the middle of the month.  
But Caesar did not heed the advice and was murdered by a group of conspirators on March 15, 44 B.C.
The “liberators,” comprised of both friend and foe alike, brutally stabbed Julius Caesar more than 20 times on the Ides of March. 
Caesar bled to death in the Roman Senate. 

Whether we like it or not,there are many twists on how some people believe or celebrate this day.
Some people see it as an unlucky day,maybe the same as Friday the 13th or what it may be.
