SANTA CLAUS THE MAGIC MUSHROOM & THE PSYCHEDELIC ORIGINS OF CHRISTMAS
It’s that time of year again! People won’t stop banging on about the John Lewis Christmas advert, ‘late night shopping’ is doing your head in, and you’ve probably eaten your body weight in mince pies and chocolate selection boxes…

Whilst many of us celebrate this strange tradition, it turns out, it’s probably a little stranger than we thought…Have you ever wondered why Father Christmas wears a red and white suit? Why we wrap our presents in red and white wrapping paper, or why we hang red and white bauballs on our tree? You get the gist, there’s a definite red & white colour scheme going on…Yes, urban legend has it that Santa himself and his red and white outfit, was designed by Coca Cola in the late Victorian period as a massive ad campaign, and while this may be partially true, there is some evidence that points to the fact that the somewhat blurred origins of Mr. Claus may have emerged, pre-Coca Cola, from Siberian shamanism and the use of the Amanita Muscaria, a red and white spotty hallucinogenic mushroom, in their shamanic practices.
