Don’t shoot the messenger. I’ve already seen my Facebook loaded with “One Holiday at a Time,” comments. But, according to psychoanalyst Steve McKeown, people who decorate earlier for Christmas tend to be more Happy. McKeown says Christmas decorations tend to make us remember our childhood and brings on strong feelings of happiness. “In a world full of stress and anxiety, people like to associate with things that make them happy.”
I say if you “Need a Little Christmas, Right This Very Minute,” Do it!! I’ve been told for years that it’s just wrong to decorate before Thanksgiving. But at the same time, I still have that inner child shouting at me going…”No, No! I need pretty lights and decorations.” Why else would I stop an ogle Christmas displays in September? (Ok, September is a little early.)
Do You Wait Until After Thanksgiving to Decorate? Or Do You Decorate Early?? I’d LOVE to know!
