Happy St Andrew's Day

Postby Lianachan » Thu Nov 30, 2017 9:26 am

November 30th - the patron saint's day that nobody gives a shit about because it's not associated with mad hats and lots of drink.

It's not just a Scottish thing, he's also the patron saint of Cyprus, Greece, Romania, Russia, Ukraine, Bulgaria, the Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople, San Andres Island in Colombia, the parish of Saint Andrew in Barbados and Tenerife.

"You, boy, what day is it?"

"Why it's St Andrew's Day!"

"Then take this sixpence and buy me the biggest square sausage you can find."

Indeed, it is a holiday for some but not us proles, even proles like me who complete their 56th trip around the sun today.
