Saint Andrew's Day is the feast day of Saint Andrew, the Patron Saint of Scotland. Saint Andrew's Day marks the beginning of the traditional Advent devotion of the Saint Andrew Christmas Novena. It is celebrated on 30 November. In many places, a Kirkin' o' the Tartan church service is held on the nearest Sunday. The celebration of Saint Andrew as an international festival is thought to originate from the reign of Malcolm III (1034–1093).
