Americans will likely spend more this St. Patrick's Day

Posted: Updated:

The National Retail Federation says that millions of Americans will be spending green on green attire this St. Patrick's Day; 127 million Americans plan to celebrate the holiday.

Last year the average person spent about $35.78 on green clothes, food and decorations, but this year we're expected to spend $36.52. That adds up to about $4.6 billion for this holiday.

A survey from the federation also says that 104 million Americans will wear green on St. Patrick's Day.
