According to the classic holiday movie, Santa Claus is Comin’ to Town (1970), Santa Claus is a redhead. Who else would live at the North Pole, deliver toys made by elves around the world for boys and girls, ride in a sleigh driven by flying reindeer, and drop down through a chimneys than a redhead? Santa Claus was a redheaded orphan, raised by elves (which makes him a redheaded stepchild), made friends with the winter wizard who gives him a magic crystal snow ball, magic corn to make the reindeer fly and ensures there is always a white Christmas and lights on the Christmas trees. He was an outlaw who fights the bad guy-Meisterberger- wins the heart of the lady through his good deeds and changes the world through gift giving!
Buying a gift for your favorite redhead can be a difficult venture since they are a unique brand of people, to say the least. Eccentric, fiery, environmentally sensitive, too smart for their own good and sometimes magically inclined are all terms that can define a redhead. Clothing is a risky choice because redheads dress to match their hair, so perhaps a pair of socks? You might go out and buy them a car, but again there is a chance the color might not suit them. My advice is to gift them really good all-natural body care from Freyja’s Magic and Thor’s Hammer. Freyjasmagic.com has a line of products that are suited to redheaded women and men. Incidentally, both the Norse gods, Freyja and Thor had red hair. All natural and uniquely scented with only pure essentials. Freyja’s Magic is the smart choice for a discerning redhead.
For the men, spice up their life with Thor’s Hammer Bay Rum Spice Aftershave or cool them down with Thor’s Hammer Fire & Ice Aftershave. Both scents are manly and refreshing and it doesn’t get any better than that! For those redbeards out there, try the Bay Rum beard balm for a soft and spicy handsome beard.
For the ladies, please them with Freyja’s Magic Whipped Cocoa Body Butter. You can’t go wrong with this choice since redheads are fiery by nature and their skin needs all the moisturizing it can get. After all what woman does not to love pamper themselves with a good body butter.
Freyja’s Magic also offers natural perfume oils of Mountain Rose and Orange Blossom, Lilac Face and Body Mist, Lemongrass Foaming Sugar Scrub, and Rose and Wintermint lip balms.
This Holiday Season, delight the redhead in your life with a handmade gift from Freyja’s Magic!
There is a strain of marijuana named after Willie Nelson called the Red headed Stranger.
I am wondering how other redheads respond to getting high on marijuana, since we respond differently to almost everything such as needing 20% more anesthesia to be put under. I myself smoked it many many times before I felt anything. But when I did, it was quite a ride. I was at a concert where White Snake opened for Quiot Riot. The music never sounded so good. I shouldn’t have been driving when we left. I remember being on a slant and the other cars moving and I thought I was going backwards, so I pressed the brakes and started screaming. I think I drove 10mph all the way the home. Those stop signs took like eternity to arrive.
I have read other discussion sites where redheads often never get high, to getting higher than anyone else to just a regular high. Sure enough there is always the uninformed response from non-redheads that cannot believe that marijuana would react differently because of one’s hair color. Personally, I haven’t touched the stuff in years. That is funny to me now that marijuana is legal in most states. Lastly, it’s always a bad ride when I have drunk alcohol before smoking.
Finally, a manly, sexy aftershave made especially for sensitive redheads! For the true Viking, the scent of the seafarer and the warrior, hand crafted and aged to perfection. All natural, no artificial colors, fragrances, or preservatives.

Viking Aftershave – Thor’s Hammer Classic Bay Rum Spice
You can always count on a redhead to do something crazy! Like challenging the full force of a hurricane wearing nothing but his briefs.
Meet the modern day berserker, Lane Pittman. Berserkers, of ancient Norse origin, were known for their fierceness. They went into battle naked wearing nothing perhaps but bearskin, hence the name. In Lane’s case, nothing but flying red hair, white skin and blue shorts. Berserkers dedicated themselves to the Norse god Odin, leader of the Viking gods, a shapeshifter possessed by the spirit of the wolf or bear. Lane in his battle frenzy challenges the force of Hurricane Florence, shaking like a shaman to heavy metal music and brandishing the American flag. Go Red!

Freyja: Goddess of Magic, Love and Healing
Of all the Norse gods and goddesses, Freyja alone has enjoyed unbroken worship throughout history. Goddess of magic, love, fertility and healing, her name means “the lady”, as if to emphasize she is the epitome of woman. Patron of wise women, seeresses, rune-mistresses and healers, she is Mistress of Seidhr, the brewing of potions and herbal medicines. As goddess of beauty, she encourages self-awareness, appreciation for and acceptance of one’s own personal beauty. She was also able give new life to the slain. Called the Shining One, legend recounts how she was cast into fire three times, each time emerging unharmed, thus earning the name. Even the rune “F” for Freyja represents good health.
Women dedicated to Freyja travelled around healing people, and this inspired us create our shop Freyja’s Magic. In the spirit of Freyja, it is our mission to bring healing to others, and cultivate true beauty through our handmade body care, crafted in harmony with nature. (Original post on vikinghof)

Were Redheads the original inhabitants of New Zealand?
Perhaps the location of New Zealand was not coincidental for the filming of the Tolkien stories of the Hobbit and the Lord of the Rings.
According to the documentary “New Zealand: Skeletons in the Cupboard” by Peter and Gabi Plumm, redheads were living in New Zealand before the native Maori. They present footage of what looks like hobbit homes for the little redhead people that lived there at one time. Stories of giant skeletons with red hair being found as well are quite astounding.
The lives of the Polynesians, known as Maori, that arrived a few thousand years ago were changed dramatically once they settled in New Zealand. The styles of their homes changed, they built amphitheaters, began using fishing nets and switched from outrigger canoes to bronze age European-style boats.

In Maori oral history there is record of people with red hair living on the island before their arrival. However, local archaeologists disregarded this history by ‘burying’ the evidence of these redheads that had been living there probably over 5000 years ago. When a native came forward sporting red hair and telling of a redheaded people coming from India, traveling to Central America and then to New Zealand, some began to question the official position. Peter and Gabi set out to explore this lost history of redheads in New Zealand and recount their fascinating findings in their documentary.
It appears New Zealand is truly a magical land of hobbits, elves and giants. Please watch the documentary that has been viewed by over half a million here:
It was a strange end for lovely redhead, Lara Prychodko, 48, who was found dead in a trash compactor, having fallen 27 floors to her death in a garbage chute in a New York upscale building. She was married to a Big Pharma exec and an associate of George Soros. Interestingly, Huma Abedin and Anthony Weiner had lived in the building as well. God bless her soul.
After reading a couple of books on red hair by female authors, I felt seriously misrepresented. Being redheads themselves, these females noted that men with red hair have gotten the short end of the stick and ended up on the negative side of what it means to be a redhead. They claimed that you don’t think of men when you think redhead and that redheaded guys are only related to Howdy Doody. Essentially us “Rufuses” are just dorks. Perhaps this is the view of popular culture, but is it what redheaded men are really like? Personally, I have always looked up to Thor the red-headed god of thunder. So I did a search on the internet to find out if there were other red-haired warriors out there. Here is pictorial proof to the contrary that the only strong, sexy redhead is a woman. I’m not sure who any of these guys are except for Shaun White. Howdy Doody? Whatever!!! I’m a berserker and proud of it!
