How Much Do Americans Spend on St. Patricks Day?
In 2013, Americans spent a total of $4.7 billion dollars on St. Patrick’s Day. Of course, not every shopper plans to budget the same way. Who buys and what is bought directly relates to how big—or small—a celebrant’s budget will be.
Our friends at U.S. News and World Report say Men spend the most. Men may not spend a majority of consumer dollars, but when they reach for their wallets, they go big. Compared to any other consumer demographic looking to make a purchase for St. Patrick’s Day this year, men have the biggest budget, with an average planned expense of about $45. Women, on the other hand, are only looking to spend around $32.
Young spenders, big spenders. Next to men, young adults take second place as consumers with the lightest wallets after St. Patrick’s Day. Those aged 25 to 34 plan on grabbing a little less than $45 in clothing, food and decorations.
