While Ireland really geared up to celebrate St. Patrick’s weekend, celebrations were also also underway on the other side of the Atlantic.


Follow up:

An estimated 39.6 million Americans claim Irish heritage, almost 7 times Ireland’s population.

St. Patrick’s Day has been getting increasingly popular in the United States with 56 percent of the population celebrating in 2013 with parades, parties and pints. Back in 2009, that figure was just 44 percent. Collectively, Americans spend an impressive $4.7 billion on St. Patricks day every year, approximately $35.27 per person.
