St. Patrick’s Day. The day we’re all a little green (probs from all the green beer and bad food choices). The day we’re all McLastName. They day where we have no idea what the holiday is about, but eff it—let’s drink!
Before you get all tore-up from the floor-up, drop some of these St. Pat’s facts on your peeps before you start spewing lies, tales, and green eggs…
174%: Increase in beer sales on St. Patrick’s Day compared to the rest of the year (153% more spirits are sold compared with the average day).
$1.6 Million: Market value of a leprechaun’s pot of gold.
$6.16 Billion: Amount spent collectively on St. Patrick’s Day 2020 ($43 per person celebrating).
32.1 Million: Number of Americans who claim Irish ancestry, second only to German and 7 times Ireland's population.
WalletHub has compiled the Best Cities for St. Patrick’s Day Celebrations based on things like number of Irish pubs and restaurants per capita; lowest price for a three-star hotel on the holiday; weather; parades, etc…
See how green your ‘hood is…
Seriously. Nevada should be placed in some created Naughty Hall of Fame. Because we all know Vegas is Sin City, and that means Nevada is the sinny-est state in the union. So, when WalletHub does their little research thing to find out the Most Sinful States next year-- we can leave Nevada off the list as permanently sinful.
Spanking Nevada's rear in second is Texas, followed by Florida, California, and Georgia. WalletHub used 47 different metrics to determine the sinning, including: anger and hatred, jealousy, excesses and vices, lust, vanity, and laziness.
See where your state ranks:
We're conflicted. Does a non-top 20 rank mean we should try and be like Vermont (least sinful?) Or should we turn up and get all sinfully competitive?
Haus of V is a creative collective that shares a similar mindset -- with a twist.
