St. Andrew's Cross

🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 ST. ANDREW'S DAY, 30th NOVEMBER: Celebrating Scotland

While I'm working on my next Greek history blog (it is coming, don't worry), and since British history isn't my specialty (yet?), I thought I'd share a few videos about Scotland and Saint Andrew, since today is Saint Andrew's Day!

This is just a one-off blog mini-series on Britain's Patron Saints and I'll be back to my regular posts ASAP.

In the meantime, hope you enjoy!
