The Ides of March was a day in the Roman calendar that corresponds to March 15th. It was marked by several religious observances and was notable for the Romans as a deadline for settling debts. In 44 BC, it became notorious as the date of the assassination of Julius Caesar which made the Ides of March a turning point in Roman history. So why is today considered unlucky?

Some people interpret the settling of debts with a broader meaning to include righting of wrongs.
