This made me so happy. I am really proud of being Scottish, and this is a day to share that pride.
“About the middle of the tenth century, Andrew became the patron saint of Scotland. Several legends state that the relics of Andrew were brought under supernatural guidance from Constantinople to the place where the modern town of St Andrews stands today”
St. Andrew is seen as being the individual who lead Scotland to become a Christian country.
To be honest, I know a lot of people view this as a day to celebrate being part of Scotland. We have a rich history and are known for being a friendly country. The government dubbed it ‘The Best Small Country in The World’, others dub it ‘God’s Country’. I call it home, and I feel that every Scot should wave a Saltire in pride and celebrate, for we have a lot to be grateful for.
So Happy St Andrews day to everyone from Scotland, where ever you are.
