There's no denying that the Super Bowl is one of the United States' most faithfully observed holidays, but the reason why this day, of all days, is important, is evolving. If you don't care about football, you can care about the commercials and if you don't care about the commercials, you can care about the halftime performance and if you don't care about any of the above at all, you can care about social media's reaction to the biggest game (and most expensive commercials) of the year.
