Everyone loves decorating for the holidays and getting in the spirit. This year, these marijuana and mushroom Christmas decorations, can help make it an extra festive experience.
It’s Christmas time – let’s decorate!
One of the most ubiquitous sites across the US, and in many other parts of the world, this time of year, is a Christmas tree. Some are adorned with tinsel, some will shiny bobbing balls, some with kindergarten noodle art, and some with other knick-knacks collected in life. Some trees have all of these; and many have a star standing at the top. And this is just inside.
Windows and doorways are often decorated with white or colored lights (both big and small), going around the perimeter. There are bales of holly hanging, and wreaths of mistletoe above doorways. Yards display big Santa cutouts, often with reindeer in tow; nativity scenes; shining stars; and smiling angels. Sometimes over an entire property.
As long as it can be imagined, it can be a part of someone’s personal Christmas yardwork. In the US, it’s a customary activity to drive around a neighborhood and look at everyone’s Christmas decorations. Even those of other religions, or who aren’t into decorating themselves; often like to see the creativeness and handiwork of their neighbors. It can even get a little competitive.
In fact, whereas its standard tradition to start putting up Christmas decorations right after Thanksgiving; some people just can’t wait, and jump the gun. It’s also not surprising to see these decorations up past Christmas; and sometimes, even long past New Year’s. Some, (especially those willing to pay the electric bill) show off their Christmas pizzazz, for over a month of time.
Christmas marijuana decorations
When it comes to Christmas, and both marijuana and mushrooms; there’s a lot of history and folklore that attach them together. It’s possible our entire concept of Santa, Christmas trees, and flying reindeer, are linked to Amanita mushrooms. These hail from Siberia and Northern Europe; although this is not to say that such history and folklore are direct, or account for everything; or that other cultural adaptations from other places are not included.
