ST. ANDREW’S DAY
St. Andrew’s Day is celebrated on the 30th of November. St. Andrew was one of Jesus’ 12 disciples and there are many differing stories about how he was recognized in Scotland before the 14th Century. His official recognition as patron saint of Scotland was officially documented at the Declaration of Arbroath in 1320.
It became a custom for farm workers to mark the day by catching rabbits then feasting and drinking, though nowadays it is typically celebrated by Scots communities around the world.
