Deck the halls and light up that Christmas tree! A new study suggests the sooner you put out your Christmas decorations, the happier you'll be.
The study published in the Journal of Environmental Psychology suggests that decorating early is a neurological pipeline to warm and fuzzy feelings around your childhood experiences.
Mental health experts say putting up decorations remind people of their childhood and bring strong emotions of excitement. So putting the lights and snowman decorations out early will jump start the Christmas joy.
The study also claims that people who decorate the outside of their homes are viewed as friendlier that those who don't decorate.
