It turns out that surprisingly large amount of people are celebrating St. Patrick's Day during their "special alone time" leading up to the Irish themed holiday. An expert told the Mirror Online that St. Patrick's Day related searches start to climb at the beginning of this week and hit peak on Thursday:
Believe it or not, some people do search 'leprechaun' throughout the year, but it goes up 8,142 per cent and 'St Patrick’s Day' goes up 6,177 per cent.
Not surprisingly, misspellings were also more common. Maybe some people just couldn't get enough of the festivities while attempting to drink their weight in green beer.
