After we read about St. Brigid's life and reminded ourselves about Ireland, Miss M and I made St. Brigid crosses using pipe cleaners and the directions found over at Catholic Icing. These crosses (traditionally woven of straw) are made on St. Brigid's Day and hung in your home to protect you from fire and disease.
Miss M made hers out of Spring colors, while the one I made is the colors of the Irish flag.
May Brigid bless the house where you dwell,
Every fireside door and every wall;
Every heart that beats beneath its roof,
Every hand that toils to bring it joy,
Every foot that walks its portals through.
May Brigid bless the house that shelters you.
