ProtectionSt. Brigid’s crosses have been hand crafted in honor of Brigid of Kildare a patron saint of Ireland for whom a feast is held on the 1st of February each year. It is said that she created the first cross out of woven rushes and used it to introduce a pagan man to the Christian faith converting him shortly before his death. The crosses were placed over doors to grant protection from evil to the inhabitants of the home.
