It's no secret our that our Christmas traditions are steeped in folklore and religious and spiritual ritual. But is something else - something far more fun and interesting - responsible for the Christmas customs we enjoy? There is a theory about psychedelics and Christmas, specifically that magic mushrooms are behind Christmas and the traditions established long ago. Scholars and academics were the first ones to note the similarities between magic mushrooms and Christmas traditions, illustrating a link that is perhaps not coincidental at all, but proof that some of our most beloved holiday conventions are directly tied to psychedelics. To some, this idea might be scarier than Krampus, but to others, it may just bring a little Christmas joy.
Below is a sampling of the many ways our modern Christmases look eerily like the world of magic 'shrooms. Are we living in a festive bliss imagined centuries ago during a magic mushroom trip?
