Saint Andrew’s Day is celebrated on 30 November, and it is a national holiday in various European countries, most prominently, Scotland. It is the feast day of Saint Andrew, who, according to the New Testament, is the disciple who introduced his sibling, the Apostle Peter, to Jesus.
Christian holidays play a very significant part in this world’s daily agenda, even though many other people around the world are not Christians and vast areas in which Christianity has no followers.

From its very beginning, Christianity set out to mark its historical events by holidays, creating these holidays to commemorate some meaningful event in the history of the religion birth.
