Think it’s too early to put up your Christmas tree? Think again. Putting up your Christmas tree and holiday decorations now, can help with mental health, a study says.
Psychoanalyst Steve McKeown tells Unilad: “Although there could be a number of symptomatic reasons why someone would want to obsessively put up decorations early, most commonly for nostalgic reasons either to relive the magic or to compensate for past neglect. In a world full of stress and anxiety people like to associate to things that make them happy and Christmas decorations evoke those strong feelings of the childhood. Decorations are simply an anchor or pathway to those old childhood magical emotions of excitement. So putting up those Christmas decorations early extends the excitement!”
So, have no shame. Let the Christmas spirit fly!
