St. Andrew's Day used to be a very popular feast day in Scotland. It was a common custom for farm workers and labourers to go 'St. Andra'ing'. They would catch rabbits and hares and later on in the day would feast and drink. There have been debates on and off for some time now about making St. Andrew's Day a public holiday in Scotland. Although some lore treats St. Andrew as the patron saint of Scotland since the 8th century a.d., some historians emphasize that Queen St. Margaret of Scotland was instrumental in encouraging the acknowledgement of St. Andrew as a patron saint rather than the traditional Celtic church's acknowledgemant of St. Columba as the parton saint of Scotland. 30 November is not a public holiday in Scotland. Indeed, St Andrew's night is celebrated more by expatriate Scots around the world. (St. Andrew is also the patron saint of Russia and Greece.)
