Spring Traditions

In Ireland the season of spring begins on the 1st of February.

On this day we celebrate St. Bridgid's Day. On this day it is traditional to make St. Bridgid's crosses. They are made from rushes and are based on a legend. In the legend St. Bridgid explains Christianity to a pagan chieftain and she makes a cross from rushes as she tells him the story of the crucifixion of Jesus. 

Fifth Class in Room 10 have created two videos to explain the story of St. Bridgid and how to make the crosses from rushes.
