To prepare you for your day of parades and partying, here are some interesting stats about the holiday that you may not know:

  • Over half of Americans (56%) will celebrate St. Patrick’s Day this year
  • The average celebrator will spend about $38
  • 82.5% of us will wear green today
  • The market value of a leprechaun’s pot of gold is $1.2 million
