- St. Brigids Day is held in honour of St. Brigid's death. Some of the customs are still held in many parts of Ireland. One of the customs is not to plough on St. Brigid's Day because a man did it long ago and he had not any crop that year.Another one is to put clothes outside somewhere for St. Brigid when she would be on her journey.The door is left unlocked and the fire is left lighting for St Brigid to come in and warm herself.Transcribed by a member of our volunteer transcription project.
