Today is (usually) National Tax Day (in the USA)

Today is (usually) National Tax Day (in the USA)

April 15 of each year is National Tax Day. As a result of the Coronavirus, the date was moved to July 15 in 2020 and to May 17 for 2021. In the United States, Tax Day is a term for the day on which individual income tax returns are due to the federal government. Income tax was first collected in The Untied States in 1862 to fund the Civil War. It was deemed unconstitutional due to not being apportioned with conformity across the states. The United States once again enacted income tax with the 16th Amendment in 1913. At that time, the filing deadline was March 1. In 1918 the deadline was changed to March 15 and then in 1955 for the most recent change, the filing deadline was moved to April 15th. Source: nationaldaycalendar.com.

Today in History: Oskar Schlemmer died in 1943

Oskar Schlemmer was a German painter, sculptor, designer and choreographer associated with the Bauhaus school. Schlemmer studied at the Stuttgart Art Academy. Between 1920 and 1929, he taught at the Bauhaus in Weimar and later at the Breslau Art School. In 1923 he was hired as Master of Form at the Bauhaus theatre workshop, after working some time at the workshop of sculpture. His perhaps most famous work is “Triadisches Ballett,” in which the actors are transfigured from the normal to geometrical shapes.

Today is National Golf (Lover’s) Day!

Today is National Golf (Lover’s) Day!

Some avid golfers might suggest any and every day is Golfer’s Day. But on this day, it’s official. Golfer’s Day is an opportunity to be thankful that someone invented this addicting, yet relaxing hobby. There is, of course, only one proper way to enjoy this day. And, that’s out on the golf course.

The modern game of golf originated in 15th century Scotland. Its earliest origins, however, are unclear. The world’s oldest golf tournament is The Open Championship which was first played in October of 1860 in Ayrshire, Scotland. Golf came to the United States in the second half of the 18th century. Today, there are over 10,000 American golf clubs.

On this day in 1895, the first US Open for Golf took place. The now annual event was played at the Newport Country Club in Newport, Rhode Island, for the first time. 11 people played the 36-hole competition in a single day. Horace Rawlins, a 21-year old Englishman won the tournament and took home a trophy and $150 cash.

Today is National Caramel Day

Today is National Caramel Day

Americans began making sugary syrups in the 1600s, but the delicious, chewy caramel we know and love today was a more recent innovation. Caramel candy emerged during the 18th century and quickly became one of the most popular sweets on the market. In fact, Milton Hershey’s first business was the Lancaster Caramel Company! Caramel is made with butter, brown and white sugar, milk or cream, and vanilla. It is usually enjoyed as an ice cream topping, a candy filling, or on its own. You can also find caramel flavored puddings, popcorn, desserts, and coffee. To celebrate National Caramel Day, enjoy some of your favorite caramel candies or make a batch of homemade caramel!
