I made and finished an Easter basket that I think everyone can make, and it doesn’t really take very long. I’ve seen this in a smaller size, but I think if you’re going to make one, go big or go home. I wonder where that saying originated from…Let’s check it out.
I went to a site called Quora and this is what they came up with…three completely different origins.
The first documented use was in the Disney TV movie Johnny Tsunami (1999), according to most Internet sources I’ve looked at.
It’s actual usage was much earlier than that. I well remember we were using “go big” and “go big or go home” in London in the mid-1980s, and we (certainly I) picked it up from older American exchange students (also Californian surfers) then. So that might be a clue.
It is military expression used by pilots involved in bombing targets. It means the longer you stay on the target the high probability of a direct hit. The go big means to expose your aircraft to ground fire for a longer time period to insure a direct hit. The go home means if you haven’t the intestinal fortitude to go big just tuck your tail and go home.
