There is a long argument from so many people that the day following the Super Bowl should almost be a national holiday. If for no other reason than to give the millions of people who stay up late drinking, a day to recover. Wouldn't you love to have that day just added to a paid holiday list at your job?

Another thing to add is that most of these days we should all get off are a Monday. Here is a little fun fact worth knowing, Monday is actually the most common day people will call in sick. In fact, the Monday following the big game is apparently called 'Super-Sick Monday'.

Here are the day's everyone in Utica should have off:

The Monday Following The Boilermaker

This one is fairly obvious. Sure, some people may recover quickly. But in reality, many people do participate and need an extra day to recoup.

The Day Following A Weeknight Comets Game

Look, this could apply to going to a concert on a weeknight. But sometimes you go a little hard on the bottle rooting for the Comets to win at The Aud. Who can blame you?

Friday After Saranac Thursdays


Look, this one is a bit tricky. I would say everyone should be able to take one Friday off each summer so they can go out and enjoy the best of Utica.

Monday Following Any Food/Beer Festival


I will stress, especially the Brewfest at The Utica Zoo. There is no such thing as sometimes going easy. So Sunday may not be the only day you need to recover. Or if you eat a gigantic abundance of CNY foods at a festival, those require time too.

Monday Following Heart Run & Walk

Cindy McMullen/TSM

Much like the Boilermaker, if you participate you should get a comp day to recover. Especially if you do the run part.

LOOK: See how much gasoline cost the year you started driving

To find out more about how has the price of gas changed throughout the years, Stacker ran the numbers on the cost of a gallon of gasoline for each of the last 84 years. Using data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (released in April 2020), we analyzed the average price for a gallon of unleaded regular gasoline from 1976 to 2020 along with the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for unleaded regular gasoline from 1937 to 1976, including the absolute and inflation-adjusted prices for each year.

Read on to explore the cost of gas over time and rediscover just how much a gallon was when you first started driving.
