Today is the feast of St. Andrew, Apostle.
From Catholic Culture:
Today's feast traditionally marks the end of the Church year and beginning of Advent. Advent always begins on the Sunday closest to November 30, with this day being the last possible day of the old Liturgical Year. Christmas is right around the corner. An old saying reflected this:
St Andrew the King
Three weeks and three days
before Christmas begins.
St. Andrew is the patron saint of Scotland (home of my father's family).
