I'm under the distinct impression "ides" meant "15th" . . . which would make it tomorrow.But I'm no Shakespeare . . .
Is there open discussion on this? My impression was that "The Ides of March" was the 15th. A quick Google search tells me that the ides of some Roman months were 13ths and some were 15ths, but in March, it's the 15th.BUT--I figure you have a REASON to be asking for speculation on this. Care to elaborate?
.Because of this. It's since been changed back, but it does seem there is some narrowspread confusion on the issue.
I'd definitely say it's today (the 15th). Yesterday was Pi Day, and you can't have Pi Day and the Ides of March on the same day.I made some pies to celebrate yesterday, but now I'm at a loss for how to properly celebrate the Ides of March today.Also, today is half of St. Patrick's Day this year. The Irish bishops changed the date for the religious celebrations to today so as to not interfere with Holy Week. Which reminds me, I need to look up who St. Patrick was.
.Think: snakes.And our Pi was Apple. Mmm.
Mmmm. . . apple pie. . . .
I neglected to have pie on Pi Day (dang it!), but we here in my apartment are celebrating the Ides of March with Little Caesar's Pizza!
.Clever. You can always celebrate European Pi Day instead--22/7.
