WASHINGTON—According to the yearly list released Tuesday by U.S. News & World Report, the United States has reportedly retaken the top spot in the publication’s annual “Party Country” rankings. “As we have each year since 1983, we evaluated countries on a strict set of criteria and found that the U.S. scored better than every other sovereign sate in key sectors such as the number of national holidays, popularity of sports teams, and general dedication to having a blast,” said lead author Jeffrey Hubbard, noting that after the U.S. was knocked out of first place by Brazil the previous year, America could credit its newly reclaimed title to an uptick in party-theme creativity and expanded cocktail selection nationwide. “Whether looking at the number of house parties or birthday bashes occurring at any given moment across the country, the U.S. is clearly the world leader in kicking back and letting loose with friends.” Hubbard added that Greece came in last place among top party countries, largely due to the Mediterranean nation’s lackluster Greek life.
