The Saint Brigid's cross is associated with Brigid of Kildare, who is venerated as one of the patron saints of Ireland. The crosses are traditionally made on February First, which is Saint Brigid's feast day.
Many rituals are associated with the making of the crosses. It was traditionally believed that a Brigid's Cross protects the house from fire and evil. It is hung in many Irish and Irish-American kitchens for this purpose.
