  • Yes I think the day after the game should be a holiday.

    Every year family and friends get together to watch the game. Having fun and having a good time but the day after is a work day so nobody wants to leave. After staying up all night partying people need sleep so that is why I think the day after the super bowl should be a holiday.

  • Yes yes yessum!!!!!

    Every holiday has a purpose. Like the birth of Christ, or a harvest festival. But in this case, it’s celebrating football. This day encourages family time and athletics. Because you're hanging out with your family and friends. And watching football or other sports will make you want to play it, which is an athletic activity. It is a day that deserves to be a holiday because most people spend it. Every year, there are probably more commercials for The Super Bowl Than Christmas! This is why I think that The Super Bowl should be a holiday!

  • Super Bowl Should Be a Holiday

    For those who claim "Only those who care for the sport of football watch it" are clearly just lying through their teeth to support their argument. EVERYONE watches the Super Bowl just because it's something to do. If you're not watching it for the sport, you're watching it for the commercials. That alone doesn't make it a worthy contender for a national holiday but because of the sheer amount of people that take off the Monday following.

    Reported 14 million people take off the Monday after Super Bowl which results in a 3 billion loss for companies across the country in total. It's feasible for it to be an automatic day off and for those who think it's just a sporting event... Let me ask you something? In a world where we haven't been this divided in my 24 years of living, it does mean a ton that we as a country can put aside our differences and root for who we want to win without any ill-will.

    That warrants national attention in my book.

  • Superbowl should be a national holiday

    1/3 of the country watches the biggest game event in the US. We're already an unproductive country the day after. Super bowl ranks with Christmas, Thanksgiving, and Halloween in my book. The other holidays hardly rank as real holidays. Who actually celebrates Columbus day or labor day, really? They are a day off with no festivities. Basically they are just another Saturday, but Superbowl is the winter equivalent of thanksgiving with family gatherings, football, and big meals. Those that complain about football are the equivalent of those who complain about having new years off or the day after thanksgiving off. If you want a holiday that can unite Americans, outside of Christmas this is it.

  • People should deal with the stress

    I think that people who party and have fun on the super bowl should have to deal with the stress in waking up for work or school the next day. Millions of people gather around to watch the amazing game and if the super bowl is an official holiday than they wont have to deal with the stress of waking up early the next day

  • Super Bowl Monday

    This is the biggest game of the year, in any sporting event. It is also the most watched television program. 114.4 million people watched Super Bowl LI. The U.S. also loses about 1 billion dollars due to lack of productivity. Last year 16.5 million people didn't go to work the day after. Also, nearly 10.5 million people called in "sick", and 7.5 million went in to work late.

  • Why can't the NFL play the game on a Saturday??

    9/11, Pearl Harbor, Election Day, etc. haven't been honored with a national holiday. But somehow people feel that after spending a few hours watching a tv show, gorging on unhealthy food and drinking too much alcohol is a good reason to take the following day off a work? Fine then call in sick. But that's hardly an honorable reason to have a national holiday declared.
    Why can't the NFL play the superbowl earlier in the day if it 'must' be on a Sunday? Or play it on a Saturday? Please don't give me cries of 'tradition' because a holiday for hangovers isn't a tradition either. (And why does the NFL have so much sway on this? They don't even carry out their patriotic duty of paying taxes. No taxation - No representation.)

  • It's only a big day for sports fans

    Many people like football and watch the Superbowl yearly, but many others do not. And you may argue that the halftime show has many respected artists performing which would lead to many people watching the halftime show, but just watching the halftime show should not constitute a national holiday. If we say that the Superbowl should be a national holiday just for the sports fans, then the Oscars should be a holiday for the movie fans, and the Tonys should be a holiday for Broadway fans. You may argue that these aren't as big as the Superbowl, but it goes to show that there are people where these awards shows are as important to them as the Superbowl is to sports fans. Making a national holiday for the Superbowl would show that the US believes sports are more important than the arts, and there would be a large group of people left out that do not watch the Superbowl.

  • It Shouldn't Be A Holiday

    Super Bowl Sunday should not be a national holiday. For one, not everyone watches football or care for the sport. The NFL's championship game also has no significance at all outside of being a big day for sports fans. There are many other things that should get consideration before the Super Bowl.

  • No, the Super Bowl should not be a national holiday.

    Football is a loved sport in America and the Super Bowl is probably the apex of sporting events, but making it a national holiday would be taking things a bit too far. There are no other sporting events that are marked as national holidays. The Super Bowl needs to be kept as a sporting event.

  • Day after

    If you're going to make anything a holiday make it the day after the Super Bowl so people can party to their hearts content and not have to bumble into work the next day. Not really a fan of this idea either, but it makes more sense than making the day itself one.

  • Making the Super Bowl a National Holiday Would Demean Real Holidays

    National Holidays should be meaningful, if not emotional, days that are meant to unite an entire nation. Take Memorial Day for example: this holiday asks every member of our nation to remember those who have died to protect our rights. The Super Bowl is an event that promotes a sport, which has little actual relevance to the past and future of our country. Making the Super Bowl a national holiday would be a disgrace to the true national holidays.
