After Christianization the fires were moved into the church courtyard and embers were carried home to light their own fires from the sacred flames. People jumped the fire as an act of purification in Celtic lands too, often building two fires and herded their live-stock between them to bless and purify animals.

Brigid, who began as a pagan goddess and ended up a Christian Saint. She was a fire and fertility Goddess and at her oak grove at Kildare an eternal flame burned until the 16th Century. Nine Virgins had tended this sacred flame since the beginning of remembered time. People still put a loaf of bread on the windowsill for her and an ear of corn for her white cow, which was her totem animal. Wheat stalks are woven into a special cross shape like a Huichol Eye of God, that serve as charms of protection from fire and lightning.
A be-ribboned wand, tipped with an acorn, a candle or other phallic object is laid across her. Candles were lit on either side of the basket, and a soft song chanted.
Kindling and logs for a new fire were set and then ignited when people returned home with an ember or coal from the community bonfire. In older times all the people of the community would light their candle from the central candle at the Candlemas Service and bring that taper home to light their house blessing candle.
The house blessing candle was a large candle that was burned throughout the year to provide blessing and protection for the home. All grain foods are traditional to this holiday especially pancakes and cakes, their golden colour and circular shape symbolising the sun.
