Fortune has smiled upon us - this year, St. Patrick's Day will fall on a Friday, so you can really get into your celebrations of all things Irish. Before you get your green on and head out to the local pub, check out the video above for a few St. Paddy's facts. You'll be able to impress your friends after a few pints of delicious green beer.

Happy St. Patrick's Day, everyone - and make sure you've got a hangover cure close by for Saturday morning.
