Brìghde, Bríde, Breeshey, Brigid or St. Bridget is a saint not only of Ireland, but also of Scottish and Manx Gaels. Her feast day is February 1st and signals the return of spring. Here I explore some of her Gaelic traditions and suggest some ways to celebrate the eve of her feast day at home on January 31st.
