Happy St. Andrew’s DayPosted: November 30, 2012
From the Daily Mirror:
The feast day of St Andrew, Scotland’s patron saint, falls on the 30th of November every year.
Saint Andrew and his brother Peter were fishermen called to be Jesus’s disciples. Andrew was eventually crucified, with a tradition growing up that the cross to which he was bound was an X-shape or Saltire, like the white cross on his flag.
Scots celebrate their national day on Twitter and other social networks, sharing pictures of their country’s beauty, symbols of national pride, and their own celebrations.
