The Day My Husband Wants Designated a National Holiday
He believes that a national holiday should be
(1) a day that brings people together,
(2) a day whose national significance is understood by young and old alike,
(3) a day that is celebrated across the nation in much the same way by everyone.
He points to Independence Day and Thanksgiving as examples of good,
sound national holidays. Applying his criteria, he further argues that the
Super Bowl deserves holiday status over a number of other already-designated national holidays.
He REEEEALY likes football.
Yellow napkins (penalty flags), are wrapped with referee whistle napkin rings.
Personal football-shaped dipping bowls allow for double dipping.
Soon after purchasing a set of
Football Penalty Glassware,
we realized they were terribly awkward to use
(too heavy, even when empty).
They ended up being more of a decorative item,
sitting on a high shelf with other seldom used glasses.
The glasses have been brought out of retirement with the addition of brown paper bag cones, and now serve as French fry holders.

The snack table is set up a few steps away.
