The Feast of Brigid, also known as Imbolc on February 1st, celebrates the arrival of Spring, with longer and warmer days approaching.
In ancient Irish mythology, Brigid was a fire goddess. The making of St. Brigid’s crosses is a ritual in Ireland every Spring. The crosses are made of rushes and are usually hung from the door or rafters of a house to protect the house from fire or evil.
