The True Origin of Christmas
Reprinted with permission from www.entheology.org
Christmas today is the best conglomeration of things that turn of the century New York retailers could put together, and its resemblance to anything before that time was purely for their convenience. For example, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer was invented by a department store to boost sales. His red nose is unlikely to have any relationship to Amanita.
Tree worship has enormous and wide-ranging pagan background quite independent of mushroom proximity. One anthropologist proposed that our habit of decorating trees with lights (only recently indoors) can be traced all the way back to ceremonies originating with Man’s learning to use fire.
The fact that Santa’s suit is red and white actually has a startlingly modern origin: Coca-cola commissioned an advertisement, with Santa wearing their colors, in 1931 to try to boost their child market. (It was illegal for them to show children actually drinking Coke in advertisements, since Coca-cola originally contained coca, but that’s another story) In the 19th century, “Father Christmas” was usually considered to wear greenish “forest” colors. Red was increasingly a popular Santa color in the early 20th century, but red and white together was due to Coca-cola’s advertisements.
“Saint” Nicholas was considered the “patron saint” of many things, including sailors, merchants, and children – but “he” wasn’t from Siberia. Actually, “Saint” Nicholas was most likely a combination of two historical characters, one of which was from Asia Minor (Turkey). Recently, the Catholic Church announced that there was never any official “Saint Nicholas”, attributing the character to pagan sources. Claiming the Eucharist is built around mushrooms is without justification, thus breaking the word “Christmas” down for us is not too meaningful.
However, many religious traditions do have origins clearly linked to entheogens, which did get replaced with a “symbolic” ceremonial placebo.

“The True meaning of Christmas”
What are the Origins of the Christmas Traditions?? Long lost into the Realm of simple Traditions are Very Amazing Truths that are long forgotten. This is My Christmas Present to you…. to know the Meanings behind the Traditions that as of yet have no Explanation.
Many books have been written about the Amanita Muscaria (Mushroom). This Mushroom is found Growing under Pine trees (Coniferous trees) All over the World. Particularly In Siberia Where Strangely enough Saint Nicholas Was From. This is a Large red and white mushroom Known to produce Religious visions. Some Synonymous names for this Mushroom through history are:
1. Soma (Hindu plant God)
2. Amrita (Buddhist Magical Sacrament)
3. Ambrosia (Greek Food of the Gods)
4. The Holy Grail (note the Grail like Shape, Vessel containing the blood of the God)
5. Fruit of the Tree of life (The main Body (mycelium) growing underground in a Symbiotic relationship with the pine tree)
6. The Golden Fleece (the magical Properties tell all)
7. The Fountain of Youth (I wonder how many Ponce De Leon Kicked over while searching)
8. Haoma (Islamic Sacrament.. Hmm Why all the Fighting?)
9. Manna (two kinds don’t look in the Ark or You are dead)
10. Bread of Life (Yes its the Loaf of Bliss)
11. Fountain of living Waters (Its Alive and its 90% water)
12. Hidden Manna (hidden until you find it)
13. The Cosmic Egg (What are we really Mimicking at Easter?? The Mushroom hunt?? Of COURSE!!)
14. The Prima Materia (Alchemy’s mystery substance)
15. The Water of Life (Pressed Juices of Soma Ancient Stuff)
16. The Flesh of the God (Sure does Resemble Flesh)
17. The Fruit of Knowledge (open your eyes)
18. The Flesh of Jesus (Take And Eat.. Not My ARM Silly!)
And that’s just the Beginning! There’s many more.
So Where does this Enter the Christmas Tradition? Many Christian Beliefs were Borrowed (to be kind) From the more ancient Religions. The Virgin Birth, The Incarnation of God, The Sacrament, Etc.
It is Well documented By Fundamentalists That the Christmas Traditions are Pagan in Origin.. Which Simply means that they Were From the Traditions of the Country Folks (pagan).
The Siberian Shamans Used and Still do today (despite Governmental Oppression) The Amanita Muscaria As a Religious Sacrament. The Value Of the Inebriant Is Placed Highly among the Commodities of the Natives. Fetching Reindeer Pelts and Meats As payment. Interesting to Note That if You aren’t Quick enough you will find only the mushroom stubs The Rest Greedily Gobbled up by the Hungry Reindeer!!! Hence Hmmm. Reindeer Flying??? Hmmm Reindeer that can fly that have a RED nose? Well Due to the Reverence that these mushrooms Receive and the Ability that they possess to Spirit the Human off to Realms of the Angels, Gods, and Demons. Its no wonder that the Natives would Think that the Reindeer Also have Some type of a Similar Effect.
So why Do People Bring Pine trees into their houses At the Winter Solstice? Placing Brightly Colored (Red and White) Packages Under the Boughs To give each other as a token of their love and As a representation of the Love of God and the gift of his Sons life?
This is Because in nature that is where you will find this “Most Sacred” Substance. Big Clue here!!! Winter Brings Rains… Rains Bring Mushrooms Go to the Mountains around Christmas time… Look under the Pine Trees :o) Because what you will find unlocks the Key Mysteries of the Universe. This Gnosis (joining together of your mind with the mind of the Universal Consciousness) is What All the Sages, Mystics, Teachers, Prophets Were talking about. That is if they knew :o).
1. Saint Nicholas is the Patron Saint of Children (in Siberia)
2. The Reindeer Eat The Mushrooms.. Hence the Flight.
3. The Mushrooms Grow under Pine Trees in nature (nearly Exclusively)
4. The Mushrooms are Red and White.
5. The Mushrooms Were Typically Dried by Hanging them on the Hearth of The Fireplaces on Strings. Stocking Stuffers anyone??
6. They are Gathered in Sacks.. Santa’s Bag.
7. The Very Name Christmas.. Is A Holiday Composing of the Words
…Christ (meaning the Anointed with the Magical Substance)
…Mass (a Special Service of the Sacramental ingestion of the Eucharist) the Body of Christ. In the Catholic Tradition this Substance Has been replaced by the Doctrine of Trans-substantiation, Whereby (By magical Ceremony) The Priests Claim the Ability to Transform A Cracker into the Literal Body of Christ.. Placebo!!
This Is Not Crazy Speculation, this is not Tradition for Traditions sake. This is Documentable, Historical, Anthropologically Provable Evidence of Surprising and Staggering Implication. A religion that does not give you direct Access to the Divine, A Religion that Expects you to be subservient to their Interpretations, is a Religion that does not have your best interest at heart.. The Understanding of Our Place in the Universe, The Realization of Self, The Direct Communion with the Divine IS the Spiritual Inheritance that We as Humans have right to !
Blessed are those that Love.. For they shall have Right to the Tree of life and Will enter through the Gates into the City.
Seek and You shall Find.. Knock and it will be opened to you,
You Have the Right to partake of the Waters of Life Freely.
I Will reveal to you the Hidden Manna.
You have the Right to the Fruit of the Tree of life.
Merry Christmas To All…I Hope all your Wishes Come True
