Research Shows Decorating Early For Christmas Is Good For You

There are two types of people in the world: the ones who decorate early for Christmas, and the ones who hate on people who decorate here.

Well to all you haters, listen up!

Researchers determined back in the 1980s that people who decorate for Christmas earlier are happier. So if you're someone who decorations right after Halloween, you're probably much happier than those who don't!

According to the research, people may use holiday decorations on their home's exterior to communicate friendliness and cohesiveness with neighbors.

The study also says that early holiday decorations can help improve one’s lack of friends over the holidays. 

“We also examine the possibility that residents who decorate for Christmas but who have few friends on the block may be using the decorations and other cues as a way of communicating their accessibility to neighbors," researchers wrote. 

So there you go! Put up those decorations as early as you want!
