It’s 30th November, which means it’s St Andrew’s Day, Scotland’s Official National day!
In 2006, the Scottish Parliament passed the St. Andrew’s Day Bank Holiday (Scotland) Act 2007, which designated the Day as an official bank holiday. If 30 November falls on a weekend, the next Monday is a bank holiday instead. Although it is a bank holiday, banks are not required to close and employers are not required to give their employees the day off as a holiday.
Not sure if you celebrate this or not, but we’d still like to wish all our readers a Happy St Andrews Day and raise a glass to you all! Thanks for your continued support on this page.
