Super Bowl Sunday - Patriots vs. Falcons

Super Bowl Sunday is the day on which the annual championship game for the National Football League is played. It is generallyplayed on the last Sunday in January or the first Sunday in February and is occasionally referred to as a holiday. The 50th annual event, called Super Bowl 50 was played on February 7, 2016. Celebrations for Super Bowl Sunday will classically involve groups of people gathering to watch the game. Both "Super Bowl Sunday" & "Super Sunday" are registered trademarks of the National Football League.


Although it isnot an official holiday, the Super Bowl Sunday is atime when many families and friends gather jointly to watch the game, including those who are not usually football fans. You'll see that all of the sports bars and clubs are busy on this day. It is becoming more common for people to watch the game from home rather than going to a stadium, this is due to the increasing size of home televisions in the United States, as well as the attempts of budget conscious consumers that are trying to save money.

Watching the Super Bowl is very popularall over the United States and people wait for this day very eagerly.  Stores are empty during the game, particularly in the regions that arerepresented by the two teams playing in the Super Bowl. The water usage will significantly rise during halftime and after the game, as fans use the bathroom. Many churches cancel afternoon or evening services on Super Bowl Sunday sometimes and hold football themed charitable drives, or bring sermons designed to appeal to male members of the congregation.

On this particular day the NFL executives call for a three-day weekend off in order to letthe fans celebrate the event, and there is a thought to be a loss of productivity in the American work force on the very next day which will be Monday after the event. The game will be shown on the following networkssuch as;CBS, Fox, or NBC. While the game will more often than notoffer the entire day's programming schedule, with unlimited pregame shows, NFL Films retrospectives of the earlier season, and special versions of the Sunday morning talk shows in the morning and afternoon hours foremost into the game. However, the competing networks, due to the severe loss of audience to the Super Bowl celebrations, generally choose to run low-cost counterprogramming events such as reruns, marathons, infomercials, and innovation shows like the Puppy Bowl.
