St. Andrew’s Day (or in Scottish Gaelic ‘Là Naomh Anndrais’), marks the country’s patron saint and occurs every year on November 30th. Many Countries have a patron saint. England has St George, Wales has St David, and Ireland has St Patrick. These patron saints have generally been chosen because they share some connection with that saint. They may have preached there, died there, or had some or all of his relics transferred there. Scotland is no different.
