Amanita Muscaria Mushrooms and their connection to Christmas www.PortalToAscension.com
In northern European shamanism, the shaman was responsible for harvesting the Amanita muscaria mushroom. There’s evidence that he would dry his amanitas, taken from the base of a conifer tree, in the tree itself! Since the harvest is in the fall and it can take some time to dry the amanitas, this could be the first evidence of a Christmas tree with ornaments of Amanita muscaria on it!
