A week from today, many amateurs will be calling off “sick”. It’s only a half-truth. They’re sick, alright. Sick from too much booze because they played “Irish” for a day—or even the entire weekend.
Thanks to WalletHub, here are some St. Patrick’s Day facts to stick in your shamrock:
There’s an 819% increase in Guinness consumption compared to the rest of the year.
The market value of a leprechaun’s pot of gold is $1.3 million. (We’d better catch that sneaky little effer this year!)
Oh, and a lot of people are Irish on St. Pat’s Day. A whopping 32.6 million claim it to be true.
If you want to be an amateur, or a pro party animal for the holiday we Americans love to bastardize, then you need to know where the best parties are. Check out this nifty map to find out where your city ranks amongst the “green eggs and keggers”.
