Students at St. Andrews University participate in the traditional Raisin Monday celebration. The tradition dates back to the early days of the university when new students would give senior students a pound of raisins in gratitude for their help in adapting to university life, in exchange for a receipt written in Latin. Failure to produce such a receipt could result in a dousing in the local fountain. Nowadays the raisins have been replaced with a bottle of wine, and the dousing with foam.
