Enjoyed Santa the Shaman
Thanks very kindly for George Sibley’s story on Santa the Shaman [December, 1998]. I would note that his informant certainly should have credited Drs. Ruth and Gordon Wasson whose The Sacred Mushroom of the Vedas was the seminal work of ethnobotany, and which also adduced the connection to European pre-Christian religion which Mr. Sibley relishes.
Next year in Colorado Central … Mistletoe and the Druids?
