Ides of March: The Ides of March is a day on the Roman calendar that corresponds to 15 March. It was marked by several religious observances and became notorious as the date of the assassination of Julius Caesar. As spoken in Shakespeare’s play Julius Caesar, “Beware the Ides of March” has become a metaphor for impending doom. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ides_of_March

Vernal Equinox: “The March equinox signals the beginning of spring in the Northern Hemisphere and autumn in the Southern Hemisphere. It marks that special moment when the sun crosses the celestial equator going from south to north.” http://earthsky.org/?p=68679

Easter: “The holiday that celebrates and commemorates the central event of the Christian faith: the resurrection of Jesus Christ three days after his death by crucifixion.” http://www.religionfacts.com/easter
