St. Andrew's Day

Definition: The Scots, Poles and Russians celebrate St. Andrew's Day.

Andrew was the first of Christ's apostles and traveled widely preaching the Christian gospel, until he was crucified by a Roman governor.

The Scots believe he was buried where the city and cathedral of St. Andrew were later built.

Both Russia and Scotland claim him as a patron Saint.

Celebrated on November 30.
