Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) -- More than 100-million people expected to tune in to the Super Bowl.

For many, Super Bowl Sunday is a bona fide holiday, a time for friends, family, and of course, food. Consumers are expected to spend more than 68-dollars per person on the big game.

Fans say it's not about the game, it's about the company.

John Winder of Moorhead, says, "There's people that come to the party who don't even like football. They don't watch football all year round, but they just come to visit. The game kind of gets to be a sideline, until maybe the end, if it's close."

One man took the holiday idea a step further. The owner of a fantasy football website has a petition to make the Monday after the Super Bowl a national holiday.
