Ides of March – March 15

Beware the Ides of March! Why, you ask? On March 15 (“ides” roughly corresponds to 15) in 44 BC, Julius Caesar was assassinated by his BFF and 60 other of his closest friends. Harsh, right? He was the leader of Rome, and was killed by 60 senators at a senate meeting because, as far as history knows, they thought he had the potential to turn into a dictator. His death has become so legendary that “Brutus,” the name of his best friend who betrayed him, has become synonymous for “traitor.” Meanwhile Caesar got so famous that Shakespeare famously immortalized his life and death in a play (that’s when you know you’ve made it). And that play is where the common phrase “et tu, Brute” (you too, Brutus) comes from. Caesar says it when he sees Brutus about to stab him! The Romans were a crazy bunch.

National Kick Butts Day – March 15

Get ready to kick some butts this March 15! We’re not talking about beating people up — we want you to kick those cigarette butts to the curb. National Kick Butts Day is a day of anti-smoking activism. Teachers, kids, youth leaders, and health advocates all participate! They come together and organize events that raise awareness of the problem of tobacco use in their communities, encourage kids to stay tobacco-free, and try to get anti-tobacco legislation passed. The day is organized by The Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids, and it was first held in 1996. Get ready to kick some butts and take some names!
