People Who Decorate Early For Christmas Are Happier Than People Who Wait

I know it’s only November 5th, but you need to go HARD on tinsel as soon as possible.

According to a psychoanalyst named Steve McKeown, people who decorate for Christmas early are HAPPIER than people who wait for a more reasonable time to put them up, like, you know, after Thanksgiving.

Why? “In a world full of stress and anxiety, people like to associate [with] things that make them happy, and Christmas decorations evoke those strong feelings of childhood.

“[They’re] simply an anchor or pathway to those old childhood magical emotions of excitement.¬† So putting up Christmas decorations early extends the excitement.”
