On November 30, Scotland will celebrate the Feast of St Andrew’s Day, an annual celebration of their homeland and patron saint, Andrew, a disciple of Jesus.

“The day is usually marked with a celebration of Scottish culture, including dancing, food, and music, and both the British Prime Minister and Scotland’s First Minister have St. Andrew’s Day messages,” explains the Telegraph.

Hame is Where the Heart Is

  It’s Hame, it’s Hame for ever,
Let shore or sea divide!
The croon o’ some dear river,
The blink o’ ae braeside.

God bless our land. We dream o’t —
The days aye brakin’ fine
On the lang, lane glints o’ heather
In the glens we kent langsyne.

Ay, we are Reubens, rovers,
‘Neath mony an alien star,
But flaunt the blue flag o’er us,
Pipe up the ” Braes o’ Mar,”
And steppe and nullah vanish,
And pomp and pelf and fame —
It’s gloamin’ — on a lown hillside,
An’ lads, . . . We’re . . . Hame.

~ Mary Symon, poet

Who Was St Andrew, Patron Saint of Scotland?

“Andrew died a martyr, and was crucified in Greece on an X-shaped cross in 60 AD, rather than the ‘T’ shape cross that Jesus was crucified on. This type of cross is also known as a saltire – the symbol that makes up the Scottish flag,” writes the Telegraph.

Smoked Haddock to Celebrate St Andrew’s Day 

While there are many traditional foods served for St. Andrews Day, I chose Chef Adam Newth’s Smoked Haddock Bake, an easy dish the entire family will love. “Coming from Arbroath,” he says, “I’ve always loved seafood, and to create the St Andrew’s Day fish dish, I chose smoked North sea haddock, to take a twist on the traditional fish pie – warm, comforting and homely- perfect fare for the winter evenings.”

Based on Chef Newth’s recipe with grams converted to U.S. measurements.
