St Andrews Day

St Adndrews Day Family Celebrations

Saint Andrew is the patron saint of Scotland. St Andrews Day is celebrated on 30 November not only is it a public holiday in Scotland, it's a perfect excuse to go treasure hunting. The flag of Scotland, the St Andrew’s Cross, was chosen in honor of him. Also, the ancient town of St Andrews was named due to its claim of being the final resting place of St Andrew.

St Andrew’s Day ranks as one of three major dates during the winter period. Starting off Scotland’s Winter Festival each year on November 30, people across the country gather together to celebrate St Andrew and share good times. The day is usually marked with a celebration of Scottish culture, including dancing, music, food and drink and the chance for everyone to spend time with each other.

Here at Huntfun we have several treasure hunts in Scotland, even one in St Andrews. Our treasure hunts are ideal for spending some family time together.
