Tour Scotland video of giant Scots at a St Andrew’s Day event on King Edward Street on visit to Perth, Perthshire, Scotland. In parts of Ukraine, Germany, Austria, Slovakia, Poland, Russia and Romania, a superstitious belief exists that the night before St. Andrew's Day is especially suitable for magic that reveals a young woman's future husband or that binds a future husband to her. Many related customs exist: for example, the pouring of hot lead into water, in Poland, one usually pours hot wax from a candle through a key hole into cold water, divining the future husband's profession from the shape of the resulting piece, related divinations using molten metals are still popular in Germany on New Year's Eve.
