Any early holiday decorators in the house? We've got good news for you (and proof to use against your family and friends who think you're 'crazy').
According to psychoanalyst Steve McKeown via Unilad,
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 the childhood.
Decorations are simply an anchor or pathway to those old childhood magical emotions of excitement. So putting up those Christmas decorations early extends the excitement!
As if you needed another reason, it could also help you make friends.
The Journal of Environmental Psychology says holiday decorations show neighbors you're more friendly and cohesive. So if you need to break the ice, feel free to hang a galore of garland and bows!
