People who decorate for Christmas early are HAPPIER than people who wait, according to a psychoanalyst. He says it’s because Christmas decorations, quote, “evoke those strong feelings of childhood . . . so putting [them] up early extends the excitement.”
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? Quote, “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.”
