Our Parish, St. Bridget's Baillieston always celebrate St. Andrews Day.

We have a special Mass on the nearest Saturday to St. Andrews Day. It is always on a Saturday so people who are working can attend.
We used to have a Ceilidh dance in the evening as well, but for some reason it has not been held these last couple of years. It was nice with Saltire's all around the hall and small one's on the table decoration.

After Mass we have a buffet breakfast in the Chapel Hall.

10'0'clock Mass this Saturday the 28th, all welcome. laugh.gif

My wife and I have traditional Haggis dinner on St Andrew's Day. It was Macsweens and was very nice. No drink though as it fell on a Monday.

I saw the BBC Scotland evening news interviewing people in the street about St Andrews day. Very few knew anything about it.

Regards

Ian

Like Weir I was in Edinburgh over the weekend and the atmosphere was electric.Weather was cold and misty but the city was pulsating with energy.There was an international on at Murrayfield and the city was awash in guys with kilts ,myself included.The St Andrews Cross was flying everywhere as people made their way out to the stadium.Princes Street is still a mess as the tram tracks go down but the gardens were packed as the Xmas festivities get under way and and a big promotion for St Andrews Day in St Andrews Square.It still amazes me how many foreign tourists are in the capital now that we are in winter...cheap flights with Ryan Air and Easyjet are still bringing in tourists from all over Europe...They even do the Ghost walks in Spanish now.....

Well hopefully some children will grow up knowing about St. Andrew.

On the feast day itself, our St. Bridgets Primary School children sang out lustily the hymn to St. Andrew at a Mass for the whole school.
Then afterwards, they had a Ceilidh in the Parish Centre. smile.gif

You'll notice it wasn't just the girls dancing, the boys were having a good time as well.

It looks to me they were doing, 'The Dashing white Sergeant', in this picture'. laugh.gif

For the uninitiated among us can you please supply the lyrics of the St Andrew's hymn.

Fairly simple Heather "hole moses that could be an EL of a walk"......simply a comment by Enrique the original poster and exactly the same phase used by Gino D’Acamapo which I thought was quite cool.....I actually thought that this st Andrews day post was an important one and yet only seven people posted on it

Attached ImageHeres some of my recieved well wishes from friends at hame in Glesga ive plenty more where these came from via emails n on Bebo & springburn remaniscence site etc.Wish id thought tae get oan here tae that day ahm Sorry ahve been away a wee while but it sure is grand tae be back.

Aye ah would suggest many folks at hame and abroad still concern themselves with St Andrews day judging by the many st andrews day wishes I reieved from both strangers in the shopping centre here in Aussie as well as from freends frae hame.We celabrated with Steak pie frae the scottish shop so we did ,we took the time tae recognise the day & raised a Glass or 2 tae.

The down under Aussie people seem tae be very taken with it also the scottish people in general every one seems to want to claim Scottish heritage here its amazing what yer Glesga accent can dae fur ye doon under friend,People just want ye tae talk awe the time & chat aboot the traditions & great warriors etc of Bonnie Scotland the Brave.Everyone Luvs the scots here.I have certainly gotten more patriotic for the things of hame since ahve been here some 21 yrs now I need to feel the closeness tae ma ain folk n ma heilan hame ye know witta mean even though I left it I still love it always will . I Meant tae say,there were also many banners in all the shops as well despite the fact there was christmas decorations everywhere St Andrew got his day here in OZ.

Bit different here, at least in this area of Canada. No-one I spoke too realized it was St.Andrew's Day and most didn't even know who he was. There was no mention on TV or radio and certainly no St.Andrew's Cross flags. The only patron saint who is remembered here is St.Patrick with all the green hoopla, etc.
