Guinness aims to set record for biggest St. Patrick’s Day party ever
One million sign-ups is their goal for Guinness Book of Records
St. Patrick’s Day is quickly approaching, and Guinness is inviting everyone to the biggest party they’ve ever held. By signing up on their website (21 and over, of course), you can add your name to the constantly growing guest list.
They also hope they will break the Guinness Book of Records for largest numbers for a party.
The party is more of a pledge to have a good time on St. Patrick’s Day, as if you needed one anyway. When signing up, you promise to:
“...make St. Patrick’s Day, 3/17/12, the biggest St. Patrick’s Day party so far, by celebrating responsibly with old friends, new friends, friends of friends, and people I’m just on nodding terms with. A Guinness for all!”
The Guinness website also pegs St. Patrick’s Day as "The Friendliest Day of the Year."
To get you even more excited for the big day this year, Guinness offers an array of fun facts about the great black stuff:
-an estimated 13,000,000 pints of Guinness are consumed internationally on St. Patrick’s Day, with 30 percent being in the U.S.
-83 percent of American adults will wear green on St. Patrick’s Day - enough to stretch from California to New York four times
-1 in 161 Americans are named Patrick, which is nearly 2 million more people than the entire population of Dublin
-With going to pubs, parties, or hosting dinners, nearly 64 million adults plan to take part in St. Patrick’s Day celebrations
