Super Bowl Sunday
February 12, Sunday
Super Bowl Sunday, officially Super Sunday in the NFL, is the day on which the Super Bowl, the National Football League (NFL)'s annual championship game, is played. Sometimes described as an unofficial national holiday, it recently occurred on the first Sunday in February until Super Bowl LV in 2021; starting with Super Bowl LVI in 2022, Super Bowl Sunday is now the second Sunday in February.
Super Sunday is an occasion when many families and friends gather together to watch the game, including those who are not normally football fans. Large amounts of food and alcohol are consumed on Super Sunday. The event is the second-largest food consumption event in the United States, behind only Thanksgiving dinner.
