How Do Reindeer Fly?

Christmas Mushroom

… and how can Santa Claus visit every house, go down chimneys, leave toys, all over the world in one night?

One of the answers is found on European Christmas trees.

Read about Finland’s version of the Julbock, Joulupukki.

Note: Don’t try this at home unless you have the kidneys of a reindeer. It also explains why gnomes are so cheerful.

Sort of: fly agaric mushroom (Amanita muscaria). The fact that the US Forest Service was interested enough to create this page is rather weird.

I did some research on the reindeer herding cultures from my time in the Arctic in the US Air Force. It was part of survival training that was based on the techniques of the groups that have lived in the Arctic for millennia. Loremasters/shamen sought wisdom in the visions induced by the mushrooms.
