A Leprechaun’s Pot of Gold is Worth Millions + Other Fun St. Patrick’s Day Facts

Lucky Pot of Gold

Suddenly driving hours around town to find the end of a rainbow doesn’t seem so foolish.

We’re just over a week away from celebrating the Luck of the Irish! St. Patrick’s Day is finally falling on a Friday again which means we’re going heavy on the green (beer) this year. It’s always a fun day filled with food, drink, music and celebrating just because you can regardless if you’re Irish or not. I, for one, do have Irish decent in me so I guess that, by default, makes me cooler. Kidding!

Thanks to WalletHub, we have some fun facts surrounding this holiday.

For instance, did you know that a leprechaun’s pot of gold contains 1,000 gold coins that weigh in at an ounce a piece? The current market value of that gold is $1.22 million dollars. I’m feeling more Irish already! The tradition of St. Patrick’s Day has been celebrated on American soil since 1737 in Boston. Also, every single year the president of Ireland presents our US president with a crystal bowl filled with shamrocks on St. Patrick’s Day. We’re almost certain this is immediately destroyed by the secret service in the name of national security blah, blah, blah.

Do you know there are numerous cities in America named Dublin? Ho many?

Don’t worry about Googling it. You’ll find the answer below, but feel free to quiz your friends…
