A bit of seasonal decor 'round chez English.

So, why the fly agaric or "toadstool" mushroom on our juniper tree? Well, dear reader, read on.

Happy holidays!!!

Bahahaha! I love it!

I'm about to decorate my tree- first real tree I've had in over a decade. I think I'm going to look for some mushroom ornaments- thanks for posting!

LOVE the article!! i've always had an affinity for those mushrooms (their aesthetics, that is, not their hallucinogenic properties!). thanks for sharing :)

That's so interesting! I immediately thought of my favorite childhood Super Mario games and all the countless references to this mushroom. :)

Merry Christmas, Englishes!
