With the Irish celebration regarded as the fourth booziest in America - can you guess what the other biggest drinking days in the US are?

The prominence of March 17th's festivities cannot be denied - each year, more than 33 million Irish-Americans wash down a pint of Guinness in honor of Ireland's patron saint. 

To put this into perspective, WalletHub.com have revealed that the annual saint's day is considered the fourth biggest 'drinking celebration' in the calendar.

St. Patrick's Day comes just behind New Years Eve, Christmas Day, and America's own national holiday Independence Day (July 4th) in terms of its alcohol consumption.

Shall we say, sláinte, to that.
