St. Brigid is the link between Ireland's Pagan past and Christian present. St. Brigid's Day, celebrated on Feb. 1, marks the beginning of spring. To celebrate, the Irish weave the St. Brigid's cross to hang doors of homes and shops to protect from harm. Hang this lovely St. Brigid's Cross in your home for added protection. Made of rushes gathered in the River Shannon. 11" L x 11" W. Handmade in Ireland.
