- On this day in history, Julius Caesar was warned by soothsayers to "beware of the Ides of March". Apparently, he did not heed the warning strongly enough as he was stabbed by Marcus Brutus on the Ides of March in 44 BC.

National Pears Helene Day
- Between the delectable aroma and juicy taste, the only thing better than eating a pear is eating Pears Helene. Pears Helene is a delicious French dessert made with sliced pairs and various toppings such as cinnamon sugar, chocolate sauce, vanilla syrup, and ice cream.

Brutus Day
- Marcus Junius Brutus, a leading conspirator in the assassination of Julius Caesar, commits suicide after his defeat at the second battle of Philippi. Two years before, Brutus had joined Gaius Cassius Longinus in the plot against the Roman dictator Julius Caesar, believing he was striking a blow for the restoration of the Roman Republic.

True Confession Day

Everything You Think is Wrong Day
- YOU ARE WRONG! Everything you think is wrong. Dead wrong. Your feelings and guts are golden, but those thoughts you’re thinking right now? WRONG! Wrong. wrong. It’s so good to be wrong. Celebrate the splendid liberation from having to be right! You’re wrong, scientists are wrong, and I’m wrong too.

Dumbstruck Day
- a day to be totally dumbstruck over the things you see, hear and read. You may easily be dumbstruck to read that someone created this special day. Some people are dumbstruck on a regular basis, day in and day out. The events in their lives and the world around them are overwhelming. Fortunately, that's not you (we hope).
