St. Andrews Day is named for the patron Saint of Scotland. Andrew, the brother of Peter the Apostle, was also a disciple of John the Baptist. Tradition says that girls wishing to marry would pray to St. Andrew at midnight on November 29th - luckily for us we are a long way from this happening in our house. Instead, I will try my hand at preparing some traditional Scottish dishes, and the kids will do some St. Andrews day themed art.
How are you celebrating St. Andrews day?
