St Andrew’s Night: a celebration

St Andrew’s marked their Patronal Festival on Friday in style.

It all started with a candlelit celebration of the Eucharist in Church. The service was followed by a splendid supper in the hall – lentil soup then haggis, neeps and tatties and finally shortbread tea and coffee.

And then the fun really started, with entertainment, including: a quiz, a sermon, song, music and general fun, games and prizes. All were encouraged to wear some tartan and that did produce some local colour and added to the atmosphere.

Other celebrations of St Andrew’s night were available across Scotland (and around the world, where finding a husband is a key theme!) with thousands of people celebrating far into the night. In fact, around the world there are probably more people gather to Mark St Andrew’s day/night than gather on the Feast days of any of the other apostles.
