“Why do people bring pine trees into their house at the winter solstice, placing brightly colored red and white packages under their boughs as gifts to show their love for each other, and as representations of the love of God and the gift of his son’s life? It is because underneath the pine bough is the exact location where one would find this most sacred substance, the Amanita Muscaria in the wild.”  -James Arthur
