Vikings would gather fresh magic mushrooms in the Scandinavian forests and quickly dry them by placing the shrooms in their socks, hanging them overnight above the fire. When morning came, they had plenty of dried shrooms just waiting to be consumed.

Christmas Stockings Originated From Drying Shrooms

Christmas stockings originated from drying shrooms in a white sock overnight. The sock would usually be filled with those red capped and white dotted fly agaric mushrooms.
