In this episode of the Breathe Love & Magic podcast we are going to learn how Santa was originally a female shaman, as we explore lore, legends, and ancient rituals traditionally lead by women to celebrate the Winter Solstice. You’ll hear how only the female deer have antlers during the winter and many other interesting tidbits long hidden away and transformed in a male dominated holiday by the church.
This is a fascinating journey that explains where the red and white colors of the holiday come from, why reindeer are still being used as symbols for the season today, and so much more that I have never before encountered.
Happy Winter Solstice!
