I was talking to my roommate the other day about putting up our Christmas tree right now and he gave me a weird look. While playing Christmas music early drives me crazy, I think putting up Christmas decorations early gives me an excuse to be happy, and now a study backs up my opinion!
A study published by the Journal of Environmental Psychology says putting up Christmas decorations early can make you recall feelings of happiness and nostalgia associated with Christmas. On top of that, it makes you seem friendlier to neighbors and outsiders as people who decorate their homes earlier tend to be more sociable.
It’s official, Christmas spirit is real! 🎅🎄🎁 https://t.co/RwF5epgyis

So going back to convincing my roommate to put up our Christmas tree, I think I came up with a clever solution.
I came across a “Halloween Christmas tree” that’s sold on Amazon. I’m not saying I bought it, but also it gets here in 2 business days.
