Another bowl — isn’t that Super?
And now, let us prepare once again for the biggest winter holiday of them all.
Christmas and New Year’s get the lion’s share of publicity, of course, but maybe that’s because they had such a head start. While 1967 seems like a long journey into yesterday for some folks, it was still recent enough in history to where there isn’t a BC or AD attached to the date.
At the time of its origination, the newcomer wasn’t considered that big a deal. In the 47 years since, however, it has gained worldwide renown. And unlike the other two seasonal holidays, it brings together people of very disparate backgrounds — Jews, Christians and atheists all partake of it with equal fervor, as do both consumers of alcohol and teetotalers.
Yes, I think it’s safe to say that the Super Bowl is, at least in an unofficial sense, as celebrated a holiday as any other on the calendar.
