It’s Friday! That means the weekend has arrived! As you may recall, this weekend has a bit of a cause for celebration as it is Super Bowl Sunday!
Hopefully you don’t feel the need to ruin a Super Bowl party, but instead can find something about the day to love. I am not even that big of a football fan, but I still enjoy the day because there really is a flurry of activity going on.
So go get your homework done early, because you don’t want to miss out on all the fun on Super Bowl Sunday (believe me – I’ve been there, and it’s the worst). Check out our ten reasons why you should enjoy Super Bowl Sunday this year!
Football (Duh)!Okay, it’s the obvious one, but if you like football, the Super Bowl is kind of THE day for that. Whether your team has made it all the way to the Super Bowl or you simply like the strategy and excitement of the sport, there’s certainly a lot of football buzz to keep you happy all day.

Animal Planet's Puppy Bowl!Quick shout out to a commenter who reminded me about this, but before the game, you can watch the annual "Puppy Bowl" at 3 p.m. on Animal Planet. Seriously, it's just the cutest thing ever. I LOVE PUPPIES!! Source: Shutterstock.com
Pre-Game Performances!Before the game even starts, we'll get to hear Alicia Keys sing "The Star-Spangled Banner." Also, it was announced yesterday that Jennifer Hudson will sing "America The Beautiful" along with the chorus from Sandy Hook Elementary School, which will surely be a really moving and beautiful moment.

Friends And Family!Many people bond over their shared love of sports and specific teams, and the Super Bowl is a great day to hang out with people important to you and share in a long-time tradition. It's a chance to bring people together all over the one game, but there's no reason that you can't use it as a time to catch up on life in general. Source: Shutterstock.com
Snacks Galore!I'm never one to pass up an occasion for snacks, and the Super Bowl is a great snack day. Whether it's pizza, wings, chips or desserts, there's bound to be something that will make you say "Yum!" Even if you're not crazy about the game, you never know if you'll find a new favorite snack at your Super Bowl party! Source: Shutterstock.com
Crazy Commercials!Well, there’s so many, so everyone gets a favorite. Even if for some reason the game gets kind of boring, there’s still plenty to watch to figure out which commercials are going to be the best. Yeah, yeah, you can watch the best of the best online the next day, but there's always something cool about seeing something when it airs in real time. Source: Shutterstock.com
Halftime Show!So Beyonce had a rough past few days with the whole inauguration debacle, but she said at a press conference she'll definitely be singing live during her halftime performance. I'm pretty certain she's going to rock the stadium with whatever she has planned. Source: Ivan Nikolov/WENN.com
Feel-Good Sports Moments!So yeah, there will always be someone who has to lose during a big game like this, but I like to focus on how its a feel-good moment for the winners. Even though I don't love football, I do like seeing how genuinely excited members of the winning team are after the game. Whether they've overcome and obstacles to get there or just worked really hard, it's pretty inspiring. Source: Shutterstock.com
Post-Game TV Specials!I started watching Grey’s Anatomy because I stuck around after the Super Bowl to watch a super dramatic episode. It’s a pretty big deal for whatever show gets that post-game slot, so they usually try to really up the stakes, which can make for some awesome TV. Source: Shutterstock.com
Time For A New Season!Not into football? Well, Super Bowl Sunday basically marks the end of football for a while. You can take that as a reason to celebrate that soon the focus will be on a sport you enjoy more, whether it's March Madness college basketball, the NBA, the NHL or even the start of baseball in a couple months.
