The Day After The Super Bowl, "Smunday", Should Be A National Holiday 🏈 🏈 🏈

Heinz Ketchup gave the day off to their employees and there’s a rumor they are trying to make the day after the Super Bowl, Smunday, a national holiday. From their Change.org campaign: 

Sign the petition to make the day after the Big Game a National Holiday. Share it with friends, family and even strangers and get THEM to sign it. If we get over 100,000 signatures, it will be sent to Congress.

An Office Pulse study (link below) found the following about Smunday:

80% of working professionals are planning to watch the game between the Denver Broncos and Carolina Panthers this Sunday, according to a recent Office Pulse survey of 874 workers. Of those watching the game, 11% plan to call out sick the day after and another 11% plan to show up late to work by at least an hour. When applying these numbers to the total US working population of 122 million employees and average hourly rate of $10.61, the total loss in productivity comes out to $1,012,650,654.

I wonder how many people take the day off in the Boston metro area.  Hit the comments section below if you find out.
