Ok make yourselves comfortable I need to talk about the Ides of March.

(This is not about Caesar. Not everything is about Caesar.)
Romans had some wild ideas about calendars. Instead of numbering the days of the month in numerical order, they named three of them and tried to locate themselves based on which of those three was closest.
The Kalends was the 1st, the Ides was the middle, and the Nones was “9” (cough, 8) days before the Ides. The Ides was only the 15th (roughly) in longer months - March, May, July & October. It was the 13th in other months.
