Beware the Ides of… April?

Today was the Ides of March. As every good reader of Shakespeare knows, Julius Caesar was stabbed to death on the Ides of March. As not everyone knows, the ides happen every month. The ides were originally thought to be the day of the full moon. This turned out not to be the case, but the ides do divide the month in half. The ides of the month are on the fifteenth of March, May, July, and October, and on the thirteenth of the other months.

Therefore, we can celebrate the ides of every month. Who’s up for celebrating the Ides of April and making everyone question our sanity?
