Scotland celebrates patron St Andrew’s Day – millions of Scottish people celebrated St Andrew’s Day yesterday 30th November, which marks the day when people across Scotland come together to celebrate the feast day of the patron saint.

The Scottish celebratory day is also known as the Feast of Saint Andrew and much like St George’s Day in England, St Patrick’s Day in Ireland and St David’s Day in Wales – this annual event brings together families and friends in celebration of the nation’s rich culture.
The day has been celebrated for over a thousand years, dating back as early as 1000 AD. It wasn’t until the 18th century that the annual celebration became commonplace.
