Sunday is St. Patrick's Day -- which means we have a “party” holiday on the weekend.
- 60 percent of Americans plan to celebrate St. Patrick's Day this year, which happens to be the fourth most popular drinking day in America, behind only New Year's Eve, Christmas and the Fourth of July.
- $5.9 billion will be spent -- and 13 million pints of Guinness will be served.
- Cabbage shipments increase 70 percent in the week leading up to the big day, with over 30 percent of Americans celebrating by preparing a traditional Irish meal.
These days, there’s a St. Patrick’s Day tradition where kids build “leprechaun traps” to try and capture the little buggers in hopes of getting a little luck or maybe even being led to a pot of gold. I'd never heard of that before, so I decided to look into these traps. Looks like a way to have some fun with the little ones over the weekend.
