Scientists Say Putting Up Christmas Decorations Early Makes You Happier!!

posted by Jaime Roberts - 

This has made me so happy this morning!!  New research from scientists says, decorating for Christmas early makes us happier.   They say there is no time limit on when you should put up your lights and trees, and that in fact, we shouldn't listen to those who say to wait until after Thanksgiving.  According to the study, Christmas decorations stir up feelings of pure joy and can literally modify some happy hormones in your body. “It create[s] that neurological shift that can produce happiness,” said psychologist Deborah Serani. “Christmas decorating will spike dopamine, a feel-good hormone.”  And the reason for that is because we associate feelings of Christmas with happy parts of our past, like being a kid and enjoy the magic of Christmas.   And even if you didn't have a happy childhood, decorating will still make you happier because it will remind you of special times with loved ones who may have passed away.  All in all it's a good thing.   And check this out, it's not only good for the decorator but for all those around the decorations.  A study published in the Journal of Environmental Psychology showed that your neighbors may interpret you putting up Christmas decorations as a sign that you’re sociable and approachable.  Find out more about the study by clicking here.  But are you as happy about this as I am?!?  I love Christmas, I love decorating, and now I even have science to back up my putting up my decorations the first week in November!!  Let's get ready for joy and magic and happiness.   What do you think?  Do you agree with the scientists or will you still wait until after Thanksgiving?
