There are many people who are not happy with how early Christmas decorations end up on store shelves, but it is possible that retailers may know something that others don't. In all likelihood, the retailers are simply looking to jump-start their holiday sales, but buying your Christmas decorations and putting them up early may actually benefit you. A study now shows that those who decorate for the festive season early are usually happier people.
Each year, social media is filled with those who are not happy with Halloween decorations going up in the summer. Fast forward a couple of months and those same people don't want Christmas decorations up before Thanksgiving comes to an end in late November.
Others don't really care and they will simply decorate whenever they please and have Christmas decorations up the moment Halloween is over. It gives them almost two full months of wreaths and ornaments and trees and lights and carols to get everyone around them in the festive spirit.
Christmas almost always makes people happy, but could having the decorations go up early make you even happier? A study does reveal that those who get the trees out and string the lights around the house a couple of months early will end up having bigger smiles on their faces.
