SuperBowl Monday Holiday

There seems to be a growing push to try and make the day after SuperBowl Sunday a holiday.  Pretty interesting idea really.  The Super Bowl is always on a sunday.  Usually around the end of January and the beginning of February.

  1. Somehow this seems a bit sacrilegious to me. We don’t even close up most businesses for other holidays more deserving. Now on the flip side we celebrate far less holidays than most other European countries from what I understand so perhaps we work too hard?

    I could be wrong, but don’t most european countries work 4 day weeks?
