National Football Hangover Day

National Football Hangover Day is a holiday that’s observed the day after the Superbowl every year to give football fans and fanatics a chance to recover from a day of too much excitement, too much food, and sometimes too much alcohol.

On this day, fans are encouraged to put away all things related to football and concentrate on other things that they might have ignored while they were watching the big game. For some people, this is going to be a day for people to catch up on their chores, and for other people, it’s going to be a day to catch up on some much-needed sleep.

The History Of National Football Hangover Day

This holiday was officially created in 2019 when ESPN host Katie Nolan invented the holiday to give sports fans a day to recover from the big game celebrations they observed the night before. She also wanted to give a special day to all of these fans who deserve a little bit of recognition for their rabid devotion to their favorite football team.

Observing National Football Hangover Day

For football fans, this holiday is pretty simple to observe. All they have to do is to take a much-needed break from football. This means not discussing the game, and returning back to normal family life. It also means taking a break from alcohol, especially if they over-abided the night before.

Football fans can also use the hashtag #NationalFootballHangoverDay to let everyone know they’re taking a break from the game that they love-but only for a day. When this day is over, it’s back to obsessing over football once again.
