Super Bowl Sunday, although not an official holiday, is a day when many people gather together to watch the game. It has become increasingly common for people to watch the game from home, due to larger home televisions and cost-saving measures. Stores are often empty during the game, and water usage drops during the game with significant rises during halftime and after the game. Churches may cancel services or hold football-themed charity drives, and NFL executives have called for a three-day weekend for fans to celebrate. The television network carrying the game will usually devote their entire day’s programming schedule to the game and other networks resort to low-cost counterprogramming measures.
