Halloween is over and now the shops are filled with various Christmas decorations! And even if the snow is not here yet, the holiday frenzy is gaining more and more people. Your neighbors may already be at the top of a ladder to install Christmas lights on their homes?
When you see houses decorated with Christmas decorations in the fall, we can find that the people who live there are impatient. It annoys even many people, because all this is too soon!
However, did you know that this is not a bad thing? On the contrary!
A psychologist claims that the earlier you put up Christmas decorations, the happier a person you’re likely to be!
"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," said psychologist Steve McKeown at UNILAD.
According to mister McKeown, Christmas decorations are a visual cue and pathway back to the excitement of childhood. Having decorations in and around the house earlier extends the season of excitement. McKeown also noted that people who put up decorations usually do so for reasons of nostalgia. Either to relive the magic or to compensate for past neglect, according to him.
People who want to decorate their Christmas tree, make a gingerbread house or hang stockings by the chimney with care before Thanksgiving may also just be trying to appear friendlier. A study published in the Journal of Environmental Psychology revealed that there is a link between decorating a house for Christmas and seeming more open and social to neighbors.
According to the study, a seasonally decorated home could help people who do not have friends in their neighborhood to integrate themselves into the social activities.
So do not hesitate to hang garlands, hang a branch of mistletoe and wear your Christmas jumpers early in the season.
Be a happy and friendly person, no matter what the grumpy say ! The children of the neighborhood will like your decorations and even the most refractory people will eventually smile. And if people grumble, tell them that science is on your side ! They will not be able to protest !
So take out your boxes of Christmas decorations and start imagining your next holiday decor! After all, the holiday season goes pretty fast and the winter is so long and dreary sometimes . . .
Dear Christmas decoration lovers, share this article without moderation so that more and more people will be happy to decorate inside and outside their homes.
And if you are not convinced, you will have to agree to be a Grinch and find your own way to be happy all year long!
