Happy Saint Andrew’s Day!

get-yer-kilt-oot-it-s-st-andrew-s-dayLet us begin the winter feasting season in the old north.  Not just a Scottish or Christian holy day, much of Europe is tied to animal slaughter and feast days to kick off the long dark season.  From and anthropological and historical perspective the feast itself is thought to be a Christianisation of Saturnalia and Samhain festivals.  Give a Scot an excuse to eat, drink, and be merry, and let the fun begin!
