According to a new survey, most people will be staying in this St. Patrick's Day, as opposed to going out. Only 14% of people will be going to celebrate at a bar on March 17th, and over 30% said they will be staying home or going to a friend's house.

Most people assume St. Patrick's Day is just a huge drinking event, but that's actually not the case. 39% of people make it a family event. Additionally, 37% will spend it with friends, and 17% turn it into a date night with a significant other.

What's St. Patrick's Day without the food?! The most common Irish meal to enjoy on the holiday is corned beef and cabbage, followed by shepard's pie.

I'll be celebrating St. Patty's Day in Des Moine with some friends, and YES, there will be corned beef :)

How will you be celebrating?
