Christmas is the most iconic holiday in the world and it’s full of strange traditions. Activities like hanging stockings and singing songs about flying reindeer have become so deeply ingrained in Christmas, that we don’t even wonder where they came from. When we trace the origin of Christmas traditions, we find that many of them may be linked to the rituals surrounding the Psychedelic mushroom, Amanita muscaria. The large red, white spotted Amanita Muscaria is the most recognizable mushroom on earth. Throughout history and across many cultures, people valued this mysterious mushroom for its powerful hallucinogenic properties.
