St Andrews Day

st-andrews-day

I wonder how many Scots know that Andrew was crucified on a diagonal cross.  Scotland adopted the diagonal as its emblem & flag.  I always thought that was amusing given Scotland was thought of as a protestant country for centuaries.  Whatever our faith we who are Scots have a reason if we need one to celebrate today.  No haggis or whiskey required because I hate them both in equal measures.  Goodnight :0)
