It’s almost St. Patrick’s Day — but what’s the holiday really all about? According to Texans’ Google searches: green beer.

Highspeedinternet.com analyzed search data across the U.S. and found what each state is searching in relation to everyone’s favorite day to don green. You might not be surprised to hear, with Texas it’s all about the green beer. The only other state to share the same search was West Virginia.

Other popular searches include, “how to cook cabbage,” “bars near me” and “Irish people” (this one was popular in Massachusetts, which reportedly has the largest Irish population in the country). Hawaiians were all about “Guiness,” while Alaskans search for “pub crawls.”

Most of the searches can be categorized within three groups: booze, food and basketball. Good to know what the holiday’s all about…
