Happy St Andrews Day
Scotland. Blessings.

St. Andrew's Day (Latha Naomh Anndra in Scots Gaelic) is the feast day of Saint Andrew. It is celebrated on 30 November.
Saint Andrew is the patron saint of Scotland, and St. Andrew's Day is Scotland's official national day. In 2006, the Scottish Parliament designated St. Andrew's Day as an official bank holiday.
Although most commonly associated with Scotland, Saint Andrew is also the patron saint of Greece, Romania, Russia and the Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople.[1]
In Germany, the feast day is celebrated as Andreasnacht ("St. Andrew's Night"), in Austria with the custom of Andreasgebet ("St. Andrew's Prayer"), and in Poland as Andrzejki ("Andrews").


St Andrew Quick Facts
St Andrew is the patron saint of Scotland.
St Andrew was credited with spreading the gospel to Romania, Greece and Russia, and is also their patron saint. Scotland is one of the few countries to have one of Christs disciples as their patron saint.
St Andrew was one of the Twelve Apostles (disciples of Jesus) and brother of St Peter.
St Andrew is believed to have died on a diagonally transversed cross which the Romans sometimes used for executions and which, therefore, came to be called St Andrews cross.
St Andrews Day is connected with Advent, which begins on the first Sunday after November 26.
St Andrews Day marks the opening of Christmas Markets, and many Midwinter customs and folk superstitions are also connected to this day.
