I recently went on vacation to Washington to see some family. While at my mom’s condominium, she showed me some old pictures of family members that were kept by my grandpa. One of the pictures was of my great, great grandmother who came over from Sweden in 1887. Along with the pictures, there was a written record that told her story of how she came to the United States.
Today is Super Bowl Sunday, perhaps the biggest unofficial holiday of the year. Millions of people around the country will tune in to see the Patriots and the Rams battle it out to see who will be this year’s Super Bowl Champion. I’ve been a big football fan since college, but what about the other millions of people who barely watch football? What makes the Super Bowl such a big, memorable event?
