Since Julius Caesar's time the "ides of March" have been fa- mous in song and story, few people realizing that every month had an "ides" in the old Roman cal- endar. The fact that Caesar was murdered on the "ides of March" made that particular day more significant. To the Romans March was the first month of the year, a calen- dar custom that persisted through- out Europe for centuries. Eng- land did not adopt the present calendar until 1752, previously dating its legal year from March 25. Literally, March is the month of Mars, based on Grecian legend. Certainly its warlike tendencies are borne out by the furious winds usually accompanying the month. If March comes in like a lion, it will go out like a lamb, or vice versa. Sunday School.
