But how early is too early?

Who are we to argue with the experts?

One, in particular, reckons that putting up your Christmas decorations could actually make you happier.

According to top psychoanalyst Steve McKeown, nostalgia plays a huge roll in boosting our mood when it comes to festive celebrations.

He told UNILad the reasoning behind it all:

“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 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 what’re ya waiting for? Maybe it isn’t too early to dust down the decorations after all!
