Study: Decorating for Christmas early makes you happier

Halloween is over and now Christmas lovers are ready to deck the halls!

While some may roll their eyes, a study suggests that the sooner you put out your Christmas decorations, the happier you'll be.

The study published in the Journal of Environmental Psychology suggests that decorating early is a neurological pipeline to warm and fuzzy feelings around your childhood experiences.

So putting the lights and snowman decorations out early will jump start the Christmas joy.

The study also claims that people who decorate the outside of their homes are viewed as friendlier and more approachable than those who don't decorate.
