Reindeer and Magic Mushrooms

Hey! Do you wanna know how to make reindeer fly? They already know the answer to that. It's magic mushrooms. And the reindeer just love them. In fact, they can sniff them out even under snow. Nobody knows if these hallucinogenic mushrooms affect them, but they give humans visions of flying.

Most of us already know that around this time of year reindeer are seen flying from the North Pole to destinations all around the world. I wonder if these little mushrooms that they love so much have anything to do with that. I watched the video about it. Now you watch it, and decide for yourself. Let me know what you think.

  1. Nice video. I didn't know those mushrooms were hallucinogenic- I see them all the time in the New Forest near me. The 'normal' magic mushrooms are much, much smaller and less obvious looking! I love reindeer and got to touch my first one this weekend :)
    (Father Christmas was visiting the local shopping centre and he had a few of his reindeer with him!)

  2. @Bemused26 - I'd love to see an actual reindeer one day. We have white-tailed deer here, but no reindeer. Reindeer are always the first kind we learn about because of the idea of them and Christmas.
