The Super Bowl. America’s unofficial holiday. The only day that brings the country together to eat great food, watch the same channel on TV, and actually look forward to commercials. This is my push for the date of the Super Bowl to become an official national holiday.
Whether it’s for the food, the commercials or the game, the Super Bowl is regularly one of the most watched event on television every year. Any annual event that people will rent the highest quality televisions available for no other reason deserves to be a holiday.
The Super Bowl is always on a Sunday. Banks are already closed on Sundays so they can’t complain that it would cut into their open business days.
But the beauty of this idea is that it can if they want it to. If desired, companies can take a vacation day on a workday surrounding the Super Bowl weekend. If not, they don’t have to.
I’m writing this as an unbiased sports fan. Yes, I love football, but even if my opinion on the sport were neutral, I’d still advocate the facilitation of the biggest football game of the year as a national holiday.
The Super Bowl even has the best commercials. It’s the one time a year I actually want to watch the commercials breaks during the game. As a fan of both the game and the ads, it makes going to the bathroom a dilemma because I don’t want to miss anything. I usually hold it until halftime.
Keep yo hands off my mama, and keep yo hands off my Doritos!
Football is my favorite sport. It’s arguably the most popular sport in the country. The Super Bowl is like Christmas and the Fourth of July for me. Six hours of pregame show leading up to the biggest game of the year is just icing on the cake. If some schools get a day off for President’s Day, the Super Bowl deserves its own holiday.
