The St. Brigid’s Cross was traditionally placed in cottages, and out-houses on her feast day, February 1st, the anniversary of her death in about 524 AD.
The tradition of hanging a St Brigid’s Crosses inside the door of your home is still strong in Ireland and crosses are often sent to friends and family abroad as a reminder of their home in Ireland. It is believed that the cross protects the home and the people and animals in it.
