Did you know!?

According to tradition, a St. Brigid’s cross is normally hung by the entrance of a house to protect the house from fire and evil.

A new cross is made each year on St. Brigid’s Day and the old cross is burned to keep fire from the house.

The making of a St. Brigid’s cross is a ritual which signifies the beginning of early spring, which occurs on the 1st of February.
