Mid-March is upon us and St. Patrick’s Day is fast approaching. From festive beer to earthy attire, people will embrace some very green traditions all over the country, but who does it best?

In a new study published by Casino.ca Canada’s St Patrick’s Day party hotspots were revealed and they may surprise you.

“We delved into the data to uncover where the Irish spirit truly thrives,” they wrote.

“Surveying 4,000 people, we reveal the top-ranking US state and Canadian province or territory that truly embraces the festivities”

According to the gambling site, each participant was asked how they were spending the holiday. Then, using the obtained data, destinations from coast to coast were given a score out of 100.

This year, Newfoundland and Labrador stole the spotlight – earning a perfect score for what they describe as “unrivalled celebrations.”

“This province truly knows how to get the festivities flowing, leading the charge with St. Paddy’s Day drinking, averaging an impressive 5 drinks per person,” they explain.

“When it comes to embracing the spirit of the holiday 100% of Newfoundlanders who are celebrating said they will be proudly wearing green attire. What’s more, their enthusiasm extends to spending, as Newfoundlanders claim the top spot with an average of $73 CAD per person expected to be splurged on drinks, surpassing the national average of $57 CAD.”

As for the other provinces? Quebec snagged the #2 spot with a score of 71.4% followed by Ontario with 54.4% percent.
