Saint of the day: No one quite knows why, but in Mediaeval times the patron saint of Scotland, Saint Andrew, became the object of a spinster cult. German maidens would strip naked to invoke a vision of a future husband, and desperate Polish girls are reputed still to hold black cats over the fire on St Andrew's Eve in the hope of bagging a husband.
