How Caesar Fandom celebrated the Ides of March.

History fandom: it’s a thing. And its main difference from regular fandom is that instead of mourning the fictional death of Sherlock Holmes on a TV show last year, history fans are usually centuries away from their current main squeeze. And right now, that’s Julius Caesar.

Today is the Ides of March, and Tumblr users are commemorating the 2,057th anniversary of Caesar’s murder at the hands of the Roman Senate. You can celebrate with some Roman cosplay, or even a topical meal: Caesar salad, stabbed 23 times with a fork.

Just don’t forget the true meaning of the day. As the Ides of March card from someecards puts it, “It’s not about just stabbing. It’s about coming together to stab in groups.” [READ MORE]Images via meangirlsofrome & durnesque-esque
