St Andrew's Day - Latha Naoimh Anndra

For a man who never set foot in Scotland, St. Andrew (Naomh Anndra) has been the main man in these parts since the 10th Century AD. But he's not just the patron saint of Scotland - Greece, Russia, and Romania have also staked their claim on him. So who was he, and why has he become an honorary Scot? All is revealed at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saint_Andrew#Scotland .

Have a great St. Andrew's Day, and let's get that saltire flying loud and proud...!

It is indeed a great honour to have such a worth person as the patron saint of Scotland as a descendent of Scots who came to South Africa I for one am proud of my Scots heritage.
