Beware the Middle of March?

Today is the Ides of March which as defined by the Roman Calendar simply means the middle of the month, the 15th in March. May, July and October and the 13th in all the other months.

There is also the

Kalends which is the first of the month.
and the Nones, which is the 7th day in March, May, July, and October; the 5th in the all the other months.
See, unless you're Caesar there's nothing to worry about!
