Saint Andrew is the Patron Saint of Scotland, and St. Andrew's Day is celebrated by Scots around the world on the 30th November.

The Lawnmarket played host to a celebration of Scotland’s many cultures with live music on an open-air stage. In The Hub, people danced the night away at the One Scotland Ceilidh with live ceilidh music, bands and DJs. Acts performing on the night included: Peatbog Faeries, Tartan Dholies, the Dougie MacLean Band, Wild Cigarillos and Croft No.5, Tablao Flamenco, Fribo and the Boghall & Bathgate Pipe band. There is a lot of folklore associated with St Andrew's Day, particularly around young women, who hope to marry. At midnight, as November 29 becomes November 30, young woman prayed to be shown signs about their future husbands. They peeled an apple in such a way that the peel remained in a single piece and threw this over their shoulders. The shape that the peel formed on the ground indicated the first letter of their future husbands' names. They also dropped molten lead or candle wax into a bucket of water. The shape that it formed indicated the profession of the men they would marry.
