Happy St. Andrew’s Day
St. Patrick gets all the press, but Scotland has its own patron saint: Saint Andrew (who else?), and he has his own day of celebration, too: November 30.
Pick up a glass of your finest single malt and raise it toward our neighbors across the pond. Even if you aren’t Scottish, good old Andrew is also the patron saint of Russia, Sicily, Greece, Romania, and Malta. He also protects all army rangers, mariners, fisherman (and fishmongers), singers, performers, and — last but not least — rope-makers.
