Putting Up Christmas Decorations Earlier Is A Sign Of Happiness

We all know that the best bit about Christmas is not the day itself, it is the exciting preamble which leads up to it - where it is all about cramming in as many festive movies as possible, shoving tinsel into every crevice of your house and a near-constant stream of roast dinners. That is the bit that should last forever because it's absolutely ace.


Well, it turns out that people who begin those gleeful Christmas preparations nice and early are happier people.


According to psychoanalyst Steve McKeown, people that get in the festive spirit sooner instead of later are generally more excited by life, which is a pretty good thing.

McKeown also reckons the nostalgia which we associate with getting all the classic Christmas decorations out takes us back to the old days when we were children - back in the day when we had no work, no responsibilities, no bills, no dramas... times were good.


As McKeown said: "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."



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


McKeown said there's even more to it, too. The people that like to cover the outside of their house in Christmas lights and decorations are considered to be more "friendly and cohesive" compared to their neighbors.
