The Super Bowl is one of the biggest sporting events of the year with millions of Americans watching every year. The day after the “Big Game” has become an unofficial holiday for many. According to a survey by the Workforce Institute at Kronos Inc., 1.4 million people call in sick and about 4.4 million people will show up late to work on Monday.

A petition was created to make the Monday after the Super Bowl a national holiday. The online petition by Fantasy Football has over 12,000 signatures, but they need 87,000 more for the petition to be sent to the White House.

The petition says, “We at Fantasy Football petition the Obama Administration to consider declaring the Monday following Super Bowl Sunday a national holiday. By doing so, the Obama Administration can promote camaraderie among the American people, keep the streets safer for our children on Sunday night and Monday morning, promote a productive workplace when work resumes on Tuesday, and honor the most popular event in modern American culture.”
