February 1 is the feast day of St. Brigid of Ireland, an influential Saint of the fifth century. It is said that St. Brigid was called to the deathbed of an old pagan chieftain. He was suffering greatly and those around him believed Brigid could bring him peace. She arrived at his bedside and tried to console him with her words. While he was still restless, Brigid picked up a few rushes that were spread on the floor and began to weave a cross. Ever since, Christians in Ireland have made crosses out of straw or rushes and placed the cross on their doorways after getting them blessed by the parish priest.
