Superbowl Sunday

Superbowl Sunday, also known as Super Bowl Sunday or Super Sunday, is The day on which the Super Bowl, the annual championship game of the National Football League (NFL), is played. The NFL is the highest level of professional American football in the United States. Superbowl Sunday is considered by many to be a de facto national holiday in the USA.  It is the second-largest single day for food consumption in the U.S., after Thanksgiving Day.

The game was created as part of a merger agreement between the NFL and the American Football League (AFL) when the two leagues were rivals, that an AFL–NFL World Championship Game between the two leagues' champion teams would play each other at the end of each season.  The two officially merged in 1970, and the two Leagues became conferences under the one NFL umbrella.  

The Super Bowl is usually the most watched American television broadcast of the year. The #1 most watched television program in the history of the U.S. is Superbowl XLV in 2011 (111 Million Viewers). #2 is Superbowl XLIV in 2010. It draws a large international audience as well. The Television Broadcast of Super Bowl is rotated annually between CBS, Fox and NBC in that order.

Due to the especially large viewership and exposure, advertizing is the most expensive of the year.  Advertisers release their best advertizements of the year and is a point of discussion with some only watching for the commercials.  The event holds a large scale event between half's of the game, the Superbowl Halftime Show, which features many of the most popular music stars in the world.

The event is held in a major U.S. city chosen usually three to five years before the game by the NFL and usually in warmer climates like Miami, Los Angeles, or New Orleans.  It is held at the begining of the year In January or Most recently, the first Sunday in February. The Game is the culmination of the previous year's game.  The 2013 Superbowl is the final event of the 2012 season.
