About the Holiday

Go for Broke Day is a day to take a chance on something. It could be asking out that girl or guy you've had your eye on. Going for that promotion or new job. Starting a business. Trying something you've always wanted to but didn't have the courage or thought that it was silly. Many of our world's successes have come as a result of someone who has taken a chance. Today, give yourself the opportunity to be that next person.

We've found nothing authoritative, though, we did find a credible tie-in that this holiday may pay tribute to the Japanese Americans of the 442nd Regimental Combat Team, including the 100th Infantry Battalion, who became the most decorated unit in American military history. Their motto was "Go for Broke"[1] and on April 5th, 1945 they made a surprise attack on Nazi positions breaking through the Nazi Gothic Line.
