If you’re ready for St. Patrick’s Day, you are not alone. Far from it, in fact.

WalletHub is getting into the spirit of the holiday with some stats that will raise almost as many eyebrows as people do pints.

It’s only appropriate that St. Patrick’s Day is all about green because Americans will spend a lot of it for the day. Specifically, $5.3 billion will be coughed up, with the average person dropping $38 on it. No wonder we’re all led to believe there’s a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.

And while St. Patrick’s Day is the fourth-biggest drinking day in the U.S. (only the fourth?) it’s also important to remember that while everyone likes to have fun on March 17 it remains a day where accidents — sometimes fatal — are frequent.

Take a look at all of the interesting figures about St. Patrick’s Day below.
