St. Andrew's Day, 30th November

In Scotland St. Andrew's Day is celebrated on the 30th of November. Around the 10th Century St. Andrew became the patron saint of Scotland and the Scottish flag bears the cross of St. Andrew.

On the 30th November many Scottish people tend to celebrate Scotland as a nation and everything which is traditional to our small country. People will often eat haggis for dinner (if you haven't tried haggis then it's a must try! Just don't ask what is it first!) and there are often ceilidhs which feature traditional Scottish music and dancing. As an ex-Highland dancer I love any excuse to get some Scottish dance moves on the go!

This leads me on to what some of my lovely twitter followers might have heard about- Scotland hour. (#Scotlandhour on twitter.) Scotland hour is an hour on twitter where everyone shares stories, tips and experiences in Scotland in order to try and promote tourism in our fabulous country.

Hope to see some Scottish enthusiasts tweeting during Scotland hour!
