ST. ANDREW'S DAY - 30th November


Scotland's National Day is St. Andrew's Day (30th November).
St. Andrew, one of Christ's twelve apostles, is the patron     
                                  saint of Scotland.
Some of his bones are said to have been brought to what is now St. Andrews in Fife during the 4th century.

Since medieval times the X-shaped saltire cross upon which St.Andrew was supposedly crucified has been the Scottish national symbol.
The floral emblem is the thistle.

Now watch this video and have a look at this beautiful country:
