Cross House Blessing:
The blessing of places of protection, production and fertility, such as a home, a garden, farm or place of business, has a long history in Mexican and Latin American countries. These crosses are given as a traditional blessing and sign of continued protection.
They are sometimes nailed into a tree, the side of an outdoor building or garden wall, as well as placed inside a new home or new place of business.Click for Larger ViewShop all
