St. Brigid - February 1

Monday is  St Brigid's Day.   

Below are some links to stories, ideas, recipes, crafts. Enjoy!

:-:  Here's a wonderful children's story of St. Brigid (or Bridgit) and the King's Wolf from The Baldwin Project.  (Do you know The Baldwin Project?  Loads of classic children's literature online.)

:-:  Liturgical Year for Little Ones has a wonderfully thorough post for St Brigid's Day celebrations.

:-:  A new to me blog: The Daily Weaving has a link to a YouTube video showing how to make St. Brigid's crosses and some other celebrations ideas.

:-:  Enjoy a tour of St. Brigid's Cathedral in Kildare, Ireland.  This website has some other photos from around modern Kildare and some historical information, too.

:-: Plan an Irish feast.  (I'm thinking about Colcannon and sausages, bread, and for dessert: Apple Shortbread Pie.)

:-: Make a lovely bread in the shape of a cross, or Brigid's cross.  Or try Barm Brack, an Irish fruit bread - wouldn't make a perfect breakfast or afternoon snack?

Blessed St. Brigid's Day!
