There's been a lot of talk over the past week about whether or not the day after the Super Bowl should be made a holiday.

The reasoning behind it would allow people who had partied and consumed alcohol during the Super Bowl to recover from from their reckless behavior the night before so that their ability to do their work at their jobs wouldn't suffer.

How I feel about is if you can't control yourself and you know that you have to work the next day, it's your fault! Responsiblity these days seem to be far and too few with a lot of people anymore.

What's your opinion on this?

The Super Bowl should be moved to Saturday night. Sunday is off for most people, recovery is a whole day, no work lost, problem solved.

I don't consider it to be reckless behavior. But when people do drink and they might not get home until close to midnight on the east coast, it can be a problem. That post I made has a link to stats in it and one was that six percent of workers don't go to work the Monday after.

I think that moving it to Saturday night is the ideal solution To make it a holiday wouldn't fly and also strikes me as wanting to lower the river instead of raising the bridge.

I’ll be taking over the world as soon as I get my cape and boots. During my first hour in office, I will issue a decree restoring the right of all Americans who risk their capital to compete in business to hire whomever they wish for whatever reasons they wish, to fire people they no longer wish to pay with or without cause, to pay employees what they can afford, AND to give them paid holidays according to their own agenda rather than the government’s. How’s that sound?

I’m thinking this will be a righteous shot of adrenalin in the haunch of an ailing economy and inspire a great many people to go into business. As it stands, an American has greater opportunity for self-determination working for someone else than opening up his own business in this over-regulated society. Don’t get me started.

There are some companies that give an employee one or more paid personal days (one's birthday is one). It is often done in such a way that it is like sick time and the employee does not get it as compensation when they leave the company. It also may be a form of window dressing and a ploy as it can be a trade off from part of the paid vacation time benefits.

Yeah, it should be called "Hangover Day".


Ok, seriously though, I agree with you, if you have to work the following day, you should be responsible enough for yourself to know when enough is enough.

Making the Monday after the Super Bowl wouldn't change things for many people anyway. There's no law that says businesses have to close on holidays, and I doubt most employers would close for such a holiday.

A majority of people have to work on holidays like MLK Day, President's Day, Columbus Day and Veteran's Day. whether they're white collar or blue collar workers. . In the retail, restaurant and hospitality businesses, it's not at all uncommon to be working on Easter, Independence Day, Thanksgiving or Christmas. And hospitals are staffed 365 days a year, 24 hours a day.

If you have to work the next day and don't want to go to work hung over, curtail your drinking. If you can't do that, you've got a problem.
