Is the myth of Santa Claus inspired by tales of Siberian shamans consuming sacred mushrooms? Why do we decorate our Christmas tree with tinsel and a star on top? Was Santa an early psychedelic voyager?
I have written a song and made an accompanying video exploring these important questions!
The song was inspired by this article by Dana Larsen: The psychedelic secrets of Santa Claus
