Today, November 30th, is St Andrew's Day, Scotland's national celebration resulting in a day full of Irn Bru, haggis dinners and the occasional drunken dance to the sound of The Proclaimers.

But one question remains - who should YOU spend the day with? Fortunately, we have narrowed down Scotland's 5m+ population to this list of our favourite Scottish baes from the world of music, movies and the general internet. 

Pick your fave and get out the whiskey glasses!

1) Calvin Harris

Giphy

How Should You Celebrate?: Go out raving in Glasgow's grimiest nightspots, Calvin hitting the decks in ABC for an impromptu set before you head back to Rihanna's place for some fine wine and tropical bangers.

 

2) Lauren Mayberry

Giphy

How Should You Celebrate?: Hit up some karaoke bars for a duet on "Bury It", nailing all the Hayley parts, before hopping on a midnight cruise aboard the good ship Parahoy, sailing down the Firth Of Forth while the other CHVRCHES lads run the indie disco.

 

3) Sam McTrusty

Giphy

How Should You Celebrate?: Find the nearest moshpit and just go straight up nuts! Then blast the new Twin Atlantic album as loud as you can on the Glasgow tube system (The Clockwork Orange) all the way home.

 

4) Alan Cumming

Giphy

How Should You Celebrate?: Pay tribute to all of Alan's finest roles by representing a high class divorcee in New York just like Eli Gold before jetting off to Russia to start a new "Goldeneye"-style Cold War and finally hit up a Cabaret bar for some burlesque realness. 

 

5) Simon Neil

Giphy

How Should You Celebrate?: Luxury beard trimming session at a posh barber shop. If you don't have a beard, put on a false one and have the barber style it for you.

 

6) Shrek

Giphy

How Should You Celebrate?: Dance around the swamp to Smashmouth all night long, making sure you are always ready to slam a door wide open whenever the first line kicks in. Shrek is love. Shrek is life. It's never ogre.

 

7) Ewan McGregor

Giphy

How Should You Celebrate?: Climb up to the highest rooftop you can find and reenact the entire plot and musical score of Moulin Rouge. Then have an epic lightsaber fight to finish. 

 

8) Karen Gillan

Giphy

How Should You Celebrate?: Travelling through time and space. Obviously.

 

9) David Tennant

Giphy

How Should You Celebrate?: Travelling through time and space. Bring Karen along too if you fancy it...

 

10) Peter Capaldi

Giphy

How Should You Celebrate?: Travelling through time and space. Wow, is the entire Doctor Who cast Scottish? Bit weird considering it films in Cardiff...

 

11) Richard Madden

Giphy

How Should You Celebrate?: Avenge the deaths of the Stark family by staging a gory wedding to be attended by all your enemies. That or, ya know, Netflix and some food or something.

 

12) Shirley Manson

Giphy

How Should You Celebrate?: Start your own all-female punk group, dragging in other Scottish musical legends Susan Boyle and Annie Lennox to complete your unstoppable hardcore foursome. 

 

13) J.K. Rowling

Giphy

How Should You Celebrate?: Tbh, this is the perfect excuse to ask for some free "Cursed Child" tickets...

 

14) Liam Dryden

Giphy

How Should You Celebrate?: Hold a private screening of Liam's seminal PopBuzz video classic "A British Guide To Thanksgiving". That bad boy is enjoyable on any holiday, all year round.
