History of St. Andrew’s Day

The New Testament of the Bible states that Saint Andrew was born in Bethesda and was the younger brother of St. Peter. Both he and Peter were fishermen–until Jesus called them to become “fishers of men.” He is believed to have been at Jesus’s Last Supper and is reported to have died on an “X” shaped cross in Greece. St. Andrew has been the patron saint of Scotland since the 9th century. However, it wasn’t until 2007 that St. Andrew’s Day became an official bank holiday in Scotland. Watch the short video below on the history of St. Andrew.
