St Brigid’s Day is on the 1st February every year, leaving us with just over one week till the Saint’s Day.
Brigid lived during the time of St. Patrick. She was deeply inspired by his preachings and became a devoted Christian. She founded many convents all over Ireland, the most famous one was in Co. Kildare.
St Brigid is heavily known for her cross. They are linked together by a story about her weaving this form of a cross at the death bed of a pagan lord who upon hearing what the cross meant, asked to be baptized. Since then the cross of rushes has been venerated in Ireland.
Making a St. Brigid’s cross is one of the traditional rituals in Ireland to celebrate the beginning of early spring, 1st February. These crosses are said to protect homes from fire and evil. The following are simple steps to create your own Brigid’s Cross.
