awaiting decision
It is still a custom here in many houses to hang out in some shady nook near the house a piece of ordinary pale blue ribbon. On the ground near it is placed a little "wisp" of hay. It is hung out St Brigid's Eve. The Saint will visit it and the hay is to act as a kneeler for her while she prays. The ribbon is taken in the following morning and kept for the year. It is a cure for headache.
