Hello and Happy Holidays to Everyone...
Its been a bit slow lately so I did some side research on a Seasonally correct topic.
A lot has been said about the 'Myth' that is Santa Claus but have we had any real hard evidence that he exists?
We all know that if enough people believe it does give something 'reality' and millions of kids and adults around the world cannot all be wrong can they?
The US Post office does indeed handle mail to Santa... has anyone (other than the movie) ever asked "Where does it go?" So here we have ONE government agency that recognizes his existence.
But bear with me a few posts...
In another forum the question was posed...
"Whats up with Rudolph
Just saw Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer on TV.
I watched it because it was my favorite X-Mas show as a kid.
Why did he do all that walking around on his quest when he can fly?
Why didn't I ever notice this before?"[/I][/COLOR] - heretic
Well History channel just did a show on Mushrooms. It appears according to them that reindeer in Lapland routinely eat magic mushrooms.
This one in particular...
So since we all know that 'fuel' makes one fly, it is highly likely that Rudolph was too young and not allowed to eat them, until he was needed.
It also gives us one more agency, the History Channel, that provides us with clues to the truth of the Santa story... in this case we know know why Reindeers fly... What? You doubt the History channel?
Now that mushroom is very famous in Germany and has long been associated with St Nick and is used in Christmas ornaments and even Marizipan candy...
German Christmas Ornaments
So the Red Suit and the 'Jolly' old St Nick has always been connected to the Pretty Red and White mushrooms...

Nice thread man.
When I was at school a teacher gave an assembly just like this, talking about magic mushrooms and all.
He said that shrooms gave Father Christmas his cloak like shape but didn't inspire his colour. He was originally green until Coca Cola used him in an ad' and made him the colour we know now.

But I think you've eaten a few too many of those mushrooms yourself mate.
