Today, the day which the Superbowl is held is considered a national American holiday. It is referred to as Superbowl Sunday, and is actually the second largest day in America for food consumption next to Thanksgiving. On Superbowl Sundays, it is tradition between family and friends to gather and watch the games while eating and drinking. Additionally, the Superbowl is the most widely watched television event in America each year. The most recent event, Superbowl XLII which was held in 2018, holds the record for being the most widely watched television show in all of America’s history. Apart from the United States, it is also one of the most watched television shows in the world.

The high viewership of the Superbowl makes the commercial airtime also one of the most expensive during the year. Companies hold up their commercials and wait for the season in order to invest the production and designs of their advertisements specifically so that they can be aired during the commercials of the Superbowl.
