Putting Up Decorations For Christmas Earlier Can Make You Feel Happier, Experts Say


We are quick to judge those people who put up their Christmas garlands, stockings, lights, ornaments, and of course, Christmas tree as soon as November comes, but it turns out that these individuals are more nostalgic and they long for the childhood emotions of excitement.

Yep, you read it right. Putting up decorations for Christmas and pulling the tree out of the EZ rolling Christmas tree storage bag earlier can make you feel happier by bringing back childhood memories.

Steve McKeown, Psychoanalyst, founder of MindFixers and owner of The McKeown Clinic, said in one interview:

“Although there could be a number of symptomatic reasons why someone would want to obsessively put up decorations early, most commonly for nostalgic reasons either to relive the magic or to compensate for past neglect.

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

“Decorations are simply an anchor or pathway to those old childhood magical emotions of excitement. So putting up those Christmas decorations early extend the excitement!”

But, not only can decorating your home with Christmas trees, lights, and wreaths fill you with joy and happiness, but it could also make you appear more friendly.

One study has revealed that people who decorate the outside of their house for Christmas appear friendly and communicate cohesiveness with their neighbors.

So, whether you’re the type of person who puts up Christmas decorations one week or one month before Christmas, the only thing you should remember is that it is never too early to begin getting festive.
