St. Patrick's Day Fun Facts

This weekend is one of those magical weekends when a party holiday -- St. Patrick's Day -- falls on a Saturday.

While some people think partying on St. Patrick’s Day is more hassle than it’s worth, a new survey says 60 percent of Americans do plan to celebrate.

13 million glasses of Guinness will be served -- and nearly four million cases of Irish whiskey will be consumed.And, a staggering $5.9 billion will be spent celebrating St. Patrick's Day this year, up from last year's record of $5.3 billion

Bonus Fast Fact: If you’re at the bar, you might want to pull out a stopwatch as the makers of Guinness say it takes 119.5 seconds to pour the perfect pint. 

If you do go out to celebrate, make sure you have a designated driver, or you Uber it, Lyft it, or cab it to get around and get home. Don't drink and drive! 

And for the love of Pete, stay away from the green beer!
