    Happy St Andrews Day

    We don't really go round saying that (not even a national holiday, sniff) but St Andrew's Day it is.


    I advise you to treat it like St Patrick's day and go and get drunk.

    When drunk go out into the street and sing this (ideally out of tune)

    so why DON'T we have our patron saints day as a national holiday ?

    Ireland get to go wild on St Patricks day [Hell, EVERYONE goes wild then ]
    yet the rest of us have to do with zip ...........

    and for those that wonder who I'm talking about :

    England = St George = April 23rd
    Scotland = St Andrew = November 30th
    Wales = St David = March 1st

    There is a bit of a movement for a St Andys holiday. It's been raised with the Executive but it didn't get very far.

    I think Burns day is actually celebrated more.

    I'm not religeous so I wouldn't celebrate these patron saints for that reason but I think they're a good show of national pride. Nationalism in a good way.

    We're not too bad at the 'Proud of our Country' stuff up here but I think England has lost out to the 'In-Ger-Lund' beer swillers a bit.
