Magic Christmas Mushroom Ornament

Magic Christmas Mushroom Ornament

Mushrooms have been a holiday tradition for years. There are many stories about how this makes the reindeer fly and how modern-day Santa got his colors. This magical ornament will get you in the Christmas spirit wherever you hang it! 

Amanita muscaria is found throughout the Northern Hemisphere under conifers and birch trees, just like presents found under the Christmas tree by excited and happy children. This explains the tradition of the Christmas tree and the gifts, wrapped in red and white, placed under the tree just like the magic mushrooms.

Santa’s flying reindeer have a similar connection to the Amanita muscaria mushrooms. Reindeer, in general, are common across Europe and Siberia, and just like the human inhabitants of these areas, they too consumed mushrooms. Harvard University biologist Donald Pfister suggests that Siberians who ingested the mushrooms may have hallucinated that the grazing reindeer were actually flying.
