Happy St Andrews Day. How do you guys celebrate?  Parades? Events?

Nope, no parades nothing. It's only been recognised in the last couple of years when we got an SNP government. It's a work holiday but you dont get it off, its added to your entitlement. We had to give io a day in September to get it.

It has been bone chilling here.  It has taken a bottle of whisky to get me through it.  It is supposed to finally warm up and snow. Have a good St. Andrews day.

Back at you, GB!  Who was St Andrew and what’s his claim to fame? 

by (2,249,710 points)

He is the patron saint of Scotland and our flag is St Andrew's Cross because he was crucified but felt unworthy to be nailed in like Jesus, so he asked for a cross X. He was one of the original 12 disciples they say and he travelled the world spreading the word but didnt actually reach Scotland. His relics were brought here by some other guy.

St Andrews day actually originates in your country. Americans with a Scottish heritage began celebrating him. Then when we got a government that was solely Scottish they gave us the holiday 

We don't do anything. It's not like St Patrick's day. Some of the smaller villages will have a Ceileigh, but basically it's just our way to reassert our unique identity in the UK.


Thank  you! I had 12 years of Catholic schooling  - I must’ve been absent every time they talked about St Andrew!

Pronunciation... say a wee toady and you'll be using my accent. Or maybe its toedy! Sounds like


Second time I see that term. What is a wee toad? 


It's a hot whisky, either with hot water or in tea. A lot of our scots words are hard to spell as they come from a day where noone could read or write except the well off of course.


I like Irish coffees.  That sounds lime something I would try. 


I love Irish coffee! It makes me soooo relaxed!

Well **HI* to you, CG!  Haven’t seen you in awhile. We missed you!! Hope all is well with you! 


I have missed you all.  I finally got my masters and things are looking up, but have been focusing on improving my marketability, and improving certain skills that will help me in the field.

Hope all is well with you
