Science Says People Who Decorate Early For Christmas Are Happier

Psychologists are saying that decorating for Christmas early can actually make us happier. So, we're here to tell you: Go ahead and bust out that Christmas tree today — it's good for your soul!

Think about it, the holiday season is a time of pure joy. It's when we gather with our loved ones to celebrate, indulge in festive activities, and bask in the glow of holiday lights. How could anyone resist the urge to be happy during this magical season?

This notion is backed by a study published in the Journal of Environmental Psychology. It found that people may use holiday decorations on their homes to spread a sense of friendliness and togetherness with their neighbors. In other words, happy folks decorating early to share the holiday spirit.

In a world brimming with stress and anxiety, people seek comfort in things that bring happiness, and Christmas decorations have a way of rekindling those warm childhood emotions. They serve as a bridge to those magical childhood feelings of excitement. So, putting up Christmas decorations early extends the excitement and we couldn't agree more!

The holiday season brings forth a wave of nostalgia. Nostalgia links people to their personal past, helping them understand who they are. For many of us, early Christmas decoration is a way to reconnect with our childhood.

So, here's the moral of this holiday story: If you're itching to decorate for Christmas early, go right ahead!

You're not just creating a festive atmosphere; you're actually boosting your own happiness. So, let the skeptics say what they will; we've got science and psychology to back us up this year!

You are slightly off if you think the Holidays are pure joy. Look at the rate of suicides, homicides, DWIs and car accidents. Look at the number of accidents related to hanging Christmas lights. Look at the stress of shopping for gifts from trying to figure what gifts to buy people to trying to figure how to afford the gifts. While Amazon shopping has helped with pushing and shoving crowds they still exist. Look at the number of thefts of packages being stolen off of people’s properties and people’s cars, Consider how many people have to put in overtime hours and shifts. Think about exhausted sales staff, hateful attitudes from shoppers and drivers in parking lots. How about dozens of people asking for donations. How about having to donate money for a Christmas gift for a supervisor you don’t like, knowing they will give you yucky homemade cookies in return. If you are involved with a church choir, you are even more busy than other people. No the holidays are not pure joy. Why do you think more and more people are saying they will be glad when the holidays are over.
