What is the story behind St. Brigid's Cross?
The daughter of Dubhtach, a Leinster pagan chieftain and stubborn nonbeliever, Brigid sat in prayer beside her dying father, and whiled away the time by weaving the first St. Brigid’s Cross from the rushes strewn about the floor. Her father seeing the cross asked her to explain its meaning and was so overwhelmed that he became a Christian before his death.
For centuries it has been customary, before the Spring planting, for Irish folk to fashion a St. Brigid’s Cross of straw or rushes and place it at the entrance to their cottage or outbuildings to protect their homes, animals and loved ones from want and evil.
To this day, in Ireland St. Brigid’s Day is celebrated on the first of February, and her crosses are still in use.
