Today's Reason to Celebrate

February 7, 2016 was

Super Bowl

Tonight is the Super Bowl®! Join your fellow Americans in watching the biggest football game (and arguably the biggest sporting event) of the year. The Super Bowl is the most watched American television broadcast, drawing more than 160 million viewers. That’s more than half the population! As a result, it also garners the highest advertising prices in the industry.

Beyond the game itself, the Super Bowl is famous for its commercials, its halftime show, and its ability to bring people together to celebrate. People consume 14,500 tons of chips and 8 million pounds of guacamole on Super Bowl Sunday. In fact, it is one of the biggest food consumption holidays, second only to Thanksgiving.

So sit back and enjoy the company of friends and family, get inspired by these Super Bowl party ideas, and root for your favorite team!
