National Football Hangover Day

National Football Hangover Day is a holiday observed the day after the Super Bowl each year to give football fans 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 activities they might have neglected while watching the big game. For some, this will be a day to catch up on chores, and for others, it will be a day to catch up on much-needed sleep.

The History of National Football Hangover Day

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

Observing National Football Hangover Day

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

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