Go For Broke Day is a day for taking a chance, giving it all you have, and leaving nothing undone. It may be a day to put all your money down when gambling, to risk everything for a new project or business endeavor, to start a new job, or take a chance on a new relationship.

The motto of the American 442nd infantry division during World War II was “Go For Broke.”

This division was made up of Nisei, Americans of second-generation Japanese descent. The soldiers fought in Europe and became the most decorated regiment in American history. Of the close to 14,000 that served, 9,486 received Purple Hearts. Twenty-one members received the Medal of Honor.

The first to do so was Sadao Munemori, who died on April 5, 1945, after sacrificing his life to save fellow soldiers near Seravezza, Italy.

If you’ve ever been in a hospital, you know that the first person you tend to encounter is the Hospital Admitting Clerk. What an admitting clerk goes through on a daily basis is perhaps not appreciated by those who are coming in. After all, they’re usually coming in sick, in pain, and generally not with their best game face on.

They deal with all the illnesses you bring in, the cranky children, the attitude that comes when you’re in pain that we can’t help. Hospital Admitting Clerks Day is dedicated to them.

Caramel Day is dedicated to the rich, gooey, delicious substance made with the dark alchemy of the culinary arts. It is the known as Caramel, which is in fact born out of the rather exacting process of caramelization.

The process is deceptively simple, you need merely increase the heat of sugar to a mere 170 °C (340 °F), at which point the sugar breaks down and turns into this much delectable substance with its rich golden color and iconic flavor. This is just the start of this process, the beginning of a trek to that which we think of as ‘Caramel’, that coater of Apples and binder of popcorn.

National Dandelion day is observed! It has always been observed annually on April 5th.


National Deep Dish Pizza Day celebrates deep-dish pizza, a variation of the Chicago-style pizza. The pizza was created at Chicago’s Pizzeria Uno in 1943, either by the pizzeria’s founder, Ike Sewell, or by its original pizza chef, Rudy Malnati.

A high-edged steel pan, almost resembling a cake or pie pan, is used to bake the pizza. It is oiled so the pizza can be easily removed, and to give the crust a fried look. Dough is pressed on the bottom and sides of the pan; the buttery, cornmeal crust is not very thick itself but may be three inches tall on the edges, in order to hold all the ingredients.

Read a Road Map Day is being observed today! It has always been observed annually on April 5th. “The road goes every onward”, but where does the road in fact go?

We could always ask our handy-dandy GPS, but Read A Road Map Day a day dedicated to going back before the time of such handy little devices. Instead it heralds back to a time when it was actually possible to hold a road map upside down, or stand over the hood of your car on the side of the road with it spread out.
